"It’s an exciting new time with the power of S/4HANA—there are so many completely new capabilities within this space to leverage."

What I do

I am currently part of our S/4HANA Digital Enterprise Leadership Team, which is charged with tapping into the new digital capabilities we have at our fingertips at Accenture, following the upgrade to S/4HANA. We are currently evaluating pain points and new opportunities voiced by our finance community to review where we can apply this new technology, such as robotic process automation and artificial intelligence.

A day in my life

My typical day is interacting with our global teams to architect solutions or tackle challenges we face in trying to deliver the best solutions to meet our business requirements. Our global teams are in the U.S., Argentina, Spain, China, India and the Philippines. Time zones can sometimes be challenging, but it is always exciting to work with people in different parts of the world with different perspectives and cultures. In my experience, a diverse global team can be one of the best assets possible to deliver a solution.

My most exciting project was pioneering the implementation of this new S/4 platform. We were one of the first and largest clients to do so, truly leading Accenture into this new frontier. We had an amazing project team and made the implementation a great success for Accenture.

I love the culture and people aspect of Accenture. In addition to always having a high level of talent, I find that we tend to also bring on fun and engaging people that have a talent for innovation. And that’s the name of the game. Technology is evolving so quickly and we need to be innovative, but continue to deliver it in a fun and interactive way.

Outside of work, I love using the Lakefront Trail (an 18-mile path along Lake Michigan) to bike or run or even just to relax or have fun. There are beaches and venues to eat or drink so there is a variety of things to do along the waterfront and the skyline obviously makes a gorgeous backdrop.

My advice

Be open-minded and flexible and excited to learn. I graduated school with a BBA in accounting and meandered my way through to where I am now. What started off as a traditional consulting role has taken me so many places and taught me so many things. I am excited to see where it continues to evolve with the fast pace technology continues to rapidly pivot.
