"I innovate with decentralized digital identity technologies and biometrics to help clients ensure seamless, secure user experiences."

How I put change in motion

My work in the Technology Innovation Group is centered on innovating with decentralized digital identity technologies—like Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) and biometrics to help clients ensure seamless, secure experiences where users can control their own identity data. Digital identity innovation in the metaverse will be critical in a world where the physical and virtual is blended across a variety of platforms.

I’ve also worked on initiatives in the blockchain space, especially as blockchain relates to identity. I’m passionate about learning new technologies and their impact.

I’m currently working on an important project for a nonprofit client, using innovative technologies to serve some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. We’re conducting field studies to understand the impact of technology and using biometrics to give the people they serve an easy way to identify themselves and access critical services.

A day in my life

In addition to my client work, I work on growing my knowledge of the latest technologies and the metaverse by:

  • Researching and providing proof points that digital identity in the metaverse is key to enabling seamless user experiences.
  • Collaborating with teams across various Accenture businesses to build cross-practice capabilities in digital identity.
  • Managing research projects that help ensure that we’re understanding the present and future impact of technologies.

I end my days by cooking and relaxing with my husband, and I enjoy hiking on the weekends with my mini-Bernedoodle.

“Digital identity is a critical capability to enabling seamless, private, secure experiences focused on the user.”

My advice

Technology is constantly changing—and with increasing speed—so you must always be sharpening your skills to keep up, and quick learning is key.

Our diverse people and projects at Accenture offer unlimited learning opportunities. There are always new challenges to solve, and if I ever feel that I’m stuck in a rut, I can start learning about a new technology or topic that is important to our clients.
