Sylvie Mortenson (atop the horse) has a love for the movies. She began her adventure in film wrangling horses in France and was hired to come to New Mexico in the 1990's for the Italian television show Lucky Luke. Sylvie has a myriad of skills from horse husbandry, entrepreneurship, being a Mom, business owner and and now a student of accounting and finance.
Sylvie joined PROTEC to increase her office skills and seek multiple internship experiences to see what might be a good fit for her as she moves back into the workforce fulltime.
Sylvie split her internship hours between the Santa Fe Film Festival and the New Mexico Film Foundation. What she found is that her appetite for experiences may be bigger than the amount of time she has. "I am going to school full-time for my accounting degree at Santa Fe Community College, I have a lot going on RIGHT NOW!"
Sylvie did have some exciting internship hours helping shoot a commercial for City of Santa Fe tourism and meeting a lot of wonderful people. "I love working with people!"
Wherever life takes her Sylvie has a positive outlook and trusts in serendipity. "I am just curious to see what happens!" she states about her future. And whatever comes her way Sylvie is ready to roll!
