"Want to work for Accenture? Think like an entrepreneur—and be ready to jump in feet first."

What I do

I help companies around the world understand the digital landscape, the strategic role of content and how they should leverage both to tell their product or service story. I was drawn to Accenture Digital because of the company’s strong commitment to inclusion and diversity, the plethora of great clients and the exciting promise and growth of digital technology.

A day in my life

One particularly exciting project was for a global food and beverage company seeking digital transformation. We facilitated a “digital safari” for the executive leadership team that included market tours, curated conversations with startup founders, design-thinking workshops and so much more. It was truly a team effort that wowed the clients by showcasing the best of Accenture and our spirit of innovation in the digital space.

Most of my free time is spent with my 9-year-old son. We live out loud and can be found dancing at a festival, eating at a food truck event, riding our bikes along the Silver Comet Trail or cheering on our beloved Atlanta sports teams. By night I work on interior design projects, turning houses into chic, yet functional places to live. I’m also passionate about empowering women, mentoring, diversity and inclusion and giving back. I spend time volunteering and assisting with community events and fundraising whenever possible.

My advice

Coming to Accenture was one of the best career decisions I ever made. Accenture provides me the opportunity to work with the world’s top companies, travel to fantastic cities and enjoy the flexibility I need to live a balanced life and bring my best self to work. If you want to join us, think like an entrepreneur—and be ready to jump in feet first.
