I recently connected with one of our senior project managers, Inna Suarez, to discuss what it’s like to serve Perficient’s healthcare clients. We discussed what Inna values most about Perficient’s culture and her team. I loved hearing Inna’s thoughts on what makes the Perficient community special, and I’m sure you will too.
Inna, thank you so much for joining me today. Can you tell me a bit about how you serve our clients?
I’m a senior project manager and Scrum master, currently working with one of the largest health insurers in the United States.
With extensive knowledge of both Waterfall and Agile methodologies, I help our client to deliver high visibility projects, while keeping them on track and on budget.
My typical day would start on a Scrum call with my team to discuss the day’s goals, blockers, and dependencies. The rest of the day is usually filled with various meetings to ensure the team stays on track. As a Scrum master, I work to raise Agile awareness across teams, share best practices, and educate those who are not yet familiar with Agile.

What do you value most about your community and responsibilities at Perficient?
I like how the healthcare unit has built a community of professionals who are both knowledgeable about healthcare and willing to share their knowledge with other team members.
I value the people on my team. I am very proud to be surrounded by smart, enthusiastic, and creative individuals.
