How do you explain your job to family, friends, or children?
I explain my job to friends and family by relating it to their personal experiences. I ask them to think of a website they’ve used for online shopping and tell them to picture the information they might see on a product like descriptions, comparable products, and key product benefits. Once they’re imagining this, I explain I work on systems that help organize that information and display it on the website.
What is your proudest professional accomplishment?
One of my proudest professional accomplishments happened during my time at Perficient with an international manufacturer and distributor of climbing products, access systems, protection equipment, and truck and van storage equipment.

During this project, I provided straightforward training on various system features, effective communication, and end-to-end support. This included thorough information detailing specifics of the system at large, explanations of how the system was built, and reassurance that the system would fully support their evolving business needs. Ultimately, this gave the client confidence to overcome any hesitations they had in fully optimizing their new technology implementations.
As a whole, this made me realize that one individual can make a huge impact on the overall progress, completion, and success of a project in addition to the client’s overall satisfaction. Sometimes, it’s easy to focus solely on the project details, but it’s important to remember the people behind the tasks and goals at large. I believe that connecting as individuals on a project is extremely important in fostering success, and I think the results of this project support this philosophy.
What has your experience at Perficient taught you?
Being at Perficient has taught me that most problems and roadblocks can be resolved with clear, effective communication followed by action. Challenges and mistakes are bound to happen at some point, but being able to remain level-headed and open throughout communication with colleagues and clients turns perceived mountains into molehills.
What advice would you give to colleagues who are starting their career with Perficient?
