However, and more importantly, her success and natural leadership contributed to her becoming a mentor to new Inside Field Engineers, being charged with the responsibility of developing the fiscal year plans for her team, and to being assigned the task of forecasting and customer database training for the district. Since coming to Keysight Harvey has been presented with symbols of excellence that have included: being awarded performance related stock options, being named MVP for the company’s Englewood Site/Call Center, and being named a member of the Winner’s Circle/Starquest (125% or higher quota) for 5 years (in Sales).

Harvey has been and still is actively involved in the DU and Denver Community.

In her spare time, Harvey enjoys spending time with her family, her book club, catching the latest movies, swimming, and working out. And with the mantra of, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” Harvey has set a sterling example for many to follow.
