"Working at Accenture has allowed me to tap into potential I never thought possible. The pace and scale at which I get to perform and contribute to clients is something unmatched within other industries."

What I Do

As a management consultant, I assist clients with diagnosing a problem and creating plans for transformation. By utilizing Accenture’s methods, tools, and assets to design and deliver outcomes, I am able to leave a client site knowing they are ready to move forward in the future. And working within the Health & Public Service space, I take pride in knowing my work is helping clients better serve their clients—my friends, family and neighbors.

Day in my Life

Accenture offers a lot of tools and resources to aid in getting the work done, but I feel the best resource of all are the people. Being able to reach out to a colleague in India or London to help with something I may need assistance on is rewarding. The Knowledge Exchange (KX)—Accenture’s global environment for people to access and share information—is one of the best, if not the best assets I have ever seen throughout my career. Using the KX has allowed me to grow my knowledge in areas of the business I have had a desire to learn, but did not know where to start.

Outside the Office

When I am not in the office, I am outside enjoying nature, hopping in my car for a spontaneous road trip, or watching sports. I am currently training for my first marathon for the coming year, so discovering new trails has become a hobby of mine.

I am also an amateur comedian. When I see people having a bad day, I jump right in to make them laugh.

Human and social rights has always been a passion of mine. I am exploring ways to assist with the homeless population in Atlanta, where we are seeing many individuals with undiagnosed or misdiagnosed mental illness. I am pushing for changes and prioritization of Mental Health funding to ensure adequate healthcare for our homeless population.

My Advice

Accenture has been in business for a long time and I believe it’s because we are the best at what we do as an organization. Don’t become overwhelmed by all that Accenture has to offer, build a team of supporters around you, and enjoy watching your career take off in ways you cannot imagine.
