How I put change in motion

As an associate director of blockchain and multiparty systems architecture, I love seeing how technologies can be put together in different ways to create something new. It’s what inspired me to be a pioneer in blockchain technology, which I’ve been involved with since 2015. In fact, I have more than 20 years of experience covering the entire software development lifecycle.

I see the metaverse in the same way; we are bringing together a larger set of existing technologies to create the internet of ownership (owned by no one and everyone) and the internet of place (personal spaces and public places). As a technologist, opportunities are limitless—hardware, software, networks, protocols, standards, interoperability, integration, accessibility, privacy and data confidentiality are just a few areas where you can grow your career.

And there’s never been a better time to work in technology—it’s a space for anyone who is interested—yes, even you. Trying things is the best way to learn, and teaching others is the best way to learn what you don’t know. Educating, mentoring and being an advocate for inclusion and diversity in technology are areas where my passion and my profession intersect.

Whether I’m answering deep technical questions for clients and colleagues, developing training materials and thought leadership or speaking on and contributing to open-source projects like the Hyperledger Foundation, where I was one of the first women elected to the technical steering committee, I stay curious and never stop learning.

A day in my life

My day-to-day is extremely varied. Here are a few ways I drive change:

  • Leading Accenture’s delivery team and working directly with clients as a trusted advisor to assess strategic problems and propose solutions.
  • Developing training materials and educating the next group of blockchain, decentralized identity and multiparty systems technology architects.
  • Creating reference architectures and other assets within the metaverse and blockchain space that can be used to accelerate client deliveries.
  • Conducting gap assessments and providing feedback on existing architectures.
  • Speaking at external conferences about topics like blockchain and the importance of inclusion and diversity.
  • Working with our partners to develop thought leadership in the metaverse and blockchain space.

Disconnecting from your work life and doing something for yourself is important. For me, that means spending time with my wife and cats, reading, bingeing on TV shows or playing pinball.

“As a technologist, opportunities are limitless.”

My advice

Technology is a space for anyone and everyone. The best way to learn is to try things, teach others and stay curious.
