Describe your role. How do you impact the company’s culture, growth, and clients? What does a typical day or project look like?
I have great experience in maintaining a company’s intranet in various industries like Automotive, Healthcare, Oil & Gas, Technology, Legal, etc. I have worked with SharePoint and Microsoft 365 platforms for over 10 years now. For the last two years and eight months, I have been working as technical lead for an Intranet portal for one of Perficient’s largest clients. I lead a team of developers and we design and engineer end-to-end experiences with Modern SharePoint Workspace that help our client succeed with speed and innovation.
According to my teammates, I always ensure excellence in delivery and have great client relationship skills. My clients have often commented on what a pleasure I am to work with.
Why did you choose your career path? How have you grown your career with Perficient?
Working as a SharePoint consultant, I enjoy bridging the gaps in architecture, design, and development of Intranet projects. I am very passionate about solving problems and acting as a communicator and mediator to provide organizational solutions through a cutting-edge understanding of the SharePoint and Microsoft 365 platforms. Each Intranet is different and that motivates me to deliver what the company needs.
I have quickly become a successful blogger after joining Perficient. I enjoy writing about new SharePoint and Microsoft 365 capabilities.
