During my time at Accenture, I have had the opportunity to work with incredibly smart people and have been able to see how my efforts have directly contributed to my clients’ successes.



What I Do

As a management consulting analyst, I help my clients work through large-scale transformational projects. I'm aligned with our Products operating group, where I have the opportunity to work with clients across the range of industries such as consumer goods and services, retail or automotive. Recently, I worked on the organizational readiness effort on a major system transformation program, using a predictive analytics tool to ensure the system was implemented successfully. In addition to my project work, I am extensively involved with the Canadian campus recruiting team and a member of the Persons with Disabilities Employee Resource Group.

Day in my Life

Since the day I joined Accenture, I’ve been staffed on projects that require me to travel. On the road, I normally wake up early and have a quick breakfast at the hotel before I head to the client site. Between balancing meetings, calls and deliverable work, my days can get quite busy. At the end of the day, I head back to the hotel gym to get a good workout in before grabbing dinner. I’m then back in my room working on either my project or one of the extracurriculars I’m involved with. I try to catch up on the day’s news before I head to bed and recharge for the following day.

Outside the Office

Outside the office, I love to travel. I think there is an incredible amount to learn from other cultures and ways of life. I’ve been fortunate enough to live on three different continents, and it has had a big impact on the way I view life.

I’m a passionate sports fan and love to watch any sport live. I’m also a proud Canadian and will happily sport the Maple Leaf at any athletic event. When I am home, I love to cook – particularly in the summer when I’m able to BBQ!

My Advice
When you first join the firm, approach every day like a sponge. Don’t be afraid to reach out to colleagues across the firm to soak up their advice and expertise.
