Accenture gave me the opportunity to work with multiple clients in different industries which enabled me to gain insights and expertise in Digital Technologies. This exposure helped in building both my technical and business acumen skills sets.

What I Do

I am a Digital Business Integration Senior Manager responsible for driving software development teams to deliver high performing mobile applications for Accenture’s Fortune 100 clients.

I am based in New York and aligned to the Financial Services practice within Accenture Consulting where I recently contributed to the delivery of AMEX Serve Mobile app, a digital prepaid reloadable mobile application platform that integrates money management tools and transactions.

I also lead several initiatives to help develop new business opportunities for Accenture.
