Joy Ritter and Shane Carlson Take Home Honey Badger Honors This Month!

Congratulations to Joy Ritter and Shane Carlson, winners of this month’s team member Honey Badger Awards.

The monthly award goes to LiveRez employees that always put the team first, make others around them stronger, and exemplify the culture and DNA of LiveRez.

Let’s learn some more about this month’s winners!

Joy Ritter - LiveRez

Joy Ritter

Joy is one of the newest team members at LiveRez, but she's already making a big impact. Joy works on our SEO team, helping partners to optimize their website content and create new content.

Additionally, she's helping manage LiveRez's social media accounts. Because of Joy, you can now find LiveRez on Instagram (and our Facebook posts have become noticeably cooler since she took the reins).

A few fun facts about Joy: she's a total morning person, can recite the entire first Harry Potter movie from memory, is an obsessive organizer, and has killed every plant she's owned. So, hire someone else for your gardening. But make sure you have Joy doing your SEO.

Shane Carlson - LiveRez

Shane Carlson

Shane is a key member of our web design team at LiveRez. He was the primary architect of our mobile responsive website framework and has played a big role in company branding initiatives, like designing the last two Partner Conference pages and redesigning the LiveRez corporate site in Sept. 2014.

Some of Shane’s hobbies include fishing, hunting, hiking, snowboarding, boating, soccer, photography and camping with his sweetheart and two little kids.

When Shane was 19 serving a mission for his church, he spent two years living among Incan descendants in places like Puno, Peru (altitude 12,500 feet!). And today when Shane is working on a special project for LiveRez, we sometimes move him to a different office in the building so he doesn't get interrupted. In those instances, LiveRez VP of Operations Tina Upson tells the team that Shane is "in Peru" (which is code for let the man work!).
