Meet Kelsie

Meet Kelsie Curtis. Kelsie is a Services Specialist who manages the students who work in our IT Service Centers across campus.  She enjoys training students for their roles and helping develop their skills as part time professionals. We like Kelsie because she’s super smart, hard working, and pragmatic. She doesn’t mess around.

We sat down with her recently to learn about some of her favorite things, including her Doctor Who themed wedding, beach reading on her Kindle, and her love of a certain university to the north…

Where did you go to school? Oklahoma State! GO POKES!! I have ended up a little south of my stomping grounds but Norman isn’t so bad after all.

Tell us about your favorite book, TV show, or movie. Oh man I have SO MANY. I am a total nerd and mediaphile so I enjoy lots of things. I am currently reading The Dresden Files book series. I can never get enough Doctor Who (David Tennant is my favorite doctor) and we can’t forget Harry Potter. Any thing Joss Whedon or Steven Moffat. I also have a soft spot for tragically-canceled-before-their-time shows like Firefly, Veronica Mars and Pushing Daisies. I also love comeback stories like Arrested Development and Community (#sixseasonsandamovie!). My guilty pleasure is Horror movies–everyone should see The Cabin In The Woods.

Do you have a favorite blog? Tell us about it! The geek blog They once featured pictures from my wedding!

What type of music do you listen to? Do you have a favorite band or artist? Alt Nation is my favorite station on XM radio. OKGO was the best live show I have EVER seen.

Describe your perfect day. If you had a day off with no responsibilities how would you spend it? I would spend it on the beach reading on my kindle, relaxing, and making sand castles.

What is your favorite place to visit? Anywhere I haven’t been before.

At happy hour I order: vodka and soda with lime.

What is your favorite app? Plants vs Zombies 2.

What was your first computer? The family Gateway tower that sat in the living room for everyone to share.

How much time do you spend on your phone? Far too much.

I cannot live without my (phone, tablet, laptop)? My iPhone sadly. I am a total Apple fangirl.

What is your favorite social media site (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn)? Twitter is probably my favorite.

Dogs or Cats? I don’t mind cats but dogs are the best!! I am obsessed with my spoiled mini schnauzer rescue Malcolm. (Named for Captain Malcolm Reynolds of the Firefly ship Serenity.)

What would we find in your fridge? Leftover food my husband cooked. I married a good one!

What did you care about most at age 10? Beating Zelda on my Nintendo.

Thank you Kelsie!
