"The people at Accenture have made my first year in the working world one of the best years of my life. The support, kindness, excitement and intelligence that they have shown has been nothing short of incredible. I am lucky to be a part of such a wonderful group of people who all come together to add value in every client engagement we face."



What I Do

I support the strategic sourcing and procurement team at my client with analysis, presentation preparation, stakeholder engagement and vendor management. I help them bring thought to action as we work toward shifting from tactical sourcing work to strategic sourcing.

Day in my Life

My day begins with a soy latte as I catch up on Accenture internal emails, as well as client work.  During the first part of the morning, I check in with my managers and with my client stakeholders to prioritize my work for the day.  This way, I can be sure I am aligned with my team and am utilizing my time to provide the most value for our clients.  Each day, I use Accenture best-practice research, guidelines, thought leadership and social collaboration tools to achieve the best results in each category I source.  I support my team and the client with deep analytics, thoughtful presentations and an eagerness to learn.  I know that my next role will likely include different responsibilities, and I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to have a new challenge! I usually end my day winding down with a run, doing yoga wherever I can find the space or hitting the gym for cross-training. 

Outside the Office

I have many interests and hobbies outside of work: marathon training; hot vinyasa yoga; singing as often as possible (and attempting to learn the guitar!); enjoying Chicago beaches and parks during the wonderful summer months; and traveling with my friends and family any opportunity I get – next up, South America!

My Advice

When I interviewed at Accenture, I was thrilled to realize that each and every person I spoke with was genuinely excited about my passions – even the passions that seemed to have nothing to do with working in consulting. After one year at Accenture, I am even more thrilled to report that my original assessment of the people here was correct. My advice – find a work place where the people thrive. It’s contagious.
