An equal partner.
What excites you most about the work that you’re doing?
As a business relationship manager, I interact with areas of the company outside of technology, so it’s gratifying to see these areas more engaged with technology and willing to take our input as an equal partner. Instead of seeing tech as a hindrance, they come to us for help. When I have both sides – the business area and technology – thinking of each other, I know I have accomplished my goal.

How are you progressing in your career?
Recently, I participated in a career development initiative that helped me identify my strengths and included a forum to bounce development ideas off of other professionals. The experience provided a boost to help me step out of my comfort zone and better realize what I bring to the table.
