For Misty, living life to the fullest used to mean she went Bungee Jumping every weekend with friends. Growing up in Idaho created in her an adventure and thrill seeking mindset and a true love of the outdoors.
Today, she no longer bungee jumps, and instead places her energy and enthusiasm into her work. Over 12 years ago, Misty moved to Arizona from Idaho where shortly after she graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelors in Communications, she was hired as a Corporate Trainer at Micron Technology.
Her expertise in course instruction includes: Marketing, Communications, Time Management, Software Training and Development, Video Production, Online Webinars, Public Speaking, and Event Management.
Upon moving to AZ, Misty worked as a Corporate Trainer for an Online Education Company. She then transitioned into starting her own business which eventually landed her a position with the SBDC as a Business Analyst. Now, armed with her additional knowledge as a business owner and coach, she is in a position to assist clients with Business Development and Marketing with RBI.
Misty’s adventurous spirit and love of the outdoors easily translates into the work she does with her clients. Each challenge is met with a can do attitude, there is always a better way, and constant improvement is a must!
