What's something you do in your role that people may not know about?
Adopting new technology is hard and corporations need help. I see my job as matchmaking between companies and partners. I like to describe digital transformation like a company is rafting down a class V river which is fast, scary and out of control. They need a river guide to help them. I see my job as helping our customers find the best partners to be their river guides. The best service partners help the company adopt the people, process and technology to transform their business.
When you're not working, where can we find you?
Cooking and hanging with my husband, boys, and dog in lovely Portland, Oregon.
What’s a piece of technology that you can't live without?
My alarm clock
