Kristen Schmid

Practice: Overhead

Title: Assistant Controller

Kristen is the Assistant Controller at Universal Mind, and has been happily handling commissions, taxes, forecasting, financial packages, analysis and review of financials, and anything else “the boss”, Blaine asks her to do, for the past several years. While this all may seem a bit dry to non-finance folks, Kristen manages to do it all with a smile on her face and her sarcastic wit in tack. (We know… we didn’t think finance people had a sense of humor either.)

Before joining the team, Kristen worked as an accountant in both the oil and gas and real estate industries. Before becoming an accountant, she spent 6 years in the Navy as a nuclear mechanic, with an emphasis on chemistry and radiation protection. She claims it’s not as cool as it sounds, but we’re willing to argue her on that one.

Outside of the office, you can be sure to find Kristen getting her hands dirty outdoors – from hiking to cycling to mountain biking, she is no stranger to the outdoor lifestyle Colorado provides. She also enjoys boxing and “chillin’ with my family and relaxin’ all cool”… possibly shootin’ some b-ball outside of the school. (Okay, we may have added in that last part; we couldn’t help ourselves.)
