"Tough times never last but tough people do" – Robert H. Schuller

One word that describes you 
Collaborative

One thing you like most about working for Fun Productions
Seeing how far we have come and counting on the world’s best team to get further.

The coolest thing I am working on right now is
Building a cohesive team with an amazing culture

The last book I read was
Traction by Gino Wickman ( I only read personal development & business books – I know that is soooo boring)!

I grew up all over Colorado but can claim to be a native since I moved here from California when I was 3 yrs old.  I am married to Darren Davis; combined we have 6 children ages 21-32 yrs old and our baby girl Emmerson who is 6 yrs old.  I started Fun Productions with my late husband Tim Abbott in 1991 because I didn’t want to go back to work after our first son was born.

I have served for 2 years as the Western Regional Vice-President for ILEA and served 6 years on the ILEA Denver Board of Directors.  In 2011, I was inducted into the ILEA Hall of Fame as well as Colorado Meeting and Events Magazine Hall of Fame.  I have also served on the Meetings Industry Council Board and on the Denver Small Business Development Center advisory board and The Colorado Meetings and Events magazine Advisory Board.

I am passionate about people knowing what they are great at and just doing that with passion.
