Education

As a technology consulting manager, I've built wide range of skills such as implementation management, deployment strategies, device and hardware architecture, as well as project and operations management.

What I Do

I am a technology consulting manager with Accenture Consulting, currently focused on transforming clients in our Products operating group. I have more than eight years of experience working on large scale system implementation projects spanning multiple service lines.

I am currently the field operations manager for the PRESTO project. I ensure the day to day operations of the PRESTO farecard devices and network infrastructures are maintained and work! My team and I are responsible for installations, monitoring and maintenance of the fare card devices.

Day in my Life

Working in an operations role means there never is a standard “day in the life” – there is always a new challenge or a new issue of the day. My day usually starts around 7AM where I check my e-mail to get caught up on the issues of the day and receive updates from our offshore team. My frist meeting starts at 8AM where we receive an update on the state of the system and then I begin to plan my day. My day is usually filled with client meetings at the client site and getting to chat with my team out at our delivery centre. Every day is exciting because you never know what is going to happen!

About Me

Outside the Office
Outside the office I am very involved in volunteer work around the Toronto area.

My Advice
Network. Meet people and make sure you stay in contact with them – these are the people you are going to meet in your career that will help you get to the next level or provide mentorship as your career grows.
