"I work in the intersection of business and IT, ‘translating’ to foster understanding."

How I put change in motion

When an organization comes to us seeking a technological solution to a problem, there can be communication gaps between business units and IT and development teams. As a Digital Practice and Offering Development Manager, I work in the intersection between the two groups, "translating” what is needed by each side to foster understanding.

I spent four years in the Marine Corps, managing projects and collaborating with cross-functional teams. Now I’m helping clients apply the latest technologies to improve their business processes. One recent project was exciting because it was a true transformation from manual processes and limited tools the client had been using for years to emerging technology.

A day in my life

I work in a project/product management capacity, and my day typically starts with status updates from both my overseas and stateside teams. Based on our progress or any project needs, I follow up on any issues my teams are experiencing so they can work more efficiently.

I spend part of my days conducting internal research to capture examples of the work in my practice to help clients understand how we are able to harness new and emerging technologies and affect change across multiple industries.

I really enjoy the entrepreneurial aspect of driving my own career path at Accenture. And when I’m not working, I love participating in the arts, as well as activities that keep me moving, from boxing to rock climbing.

My advice

Understanding how your client’s business works will be your greatest asset in order to deliver on the promise of technology: transformation. You cannot effectively transform any process you don’t understand, whether on its own or from a big-picture perspective.
