What is your role? Describe a typical day in the life.
As a senior technical consultant, I help clients better leverage their data. I assist and advise teams when migrating data and infrastructure to Google Cloud Platform (GCP). My client is new to GCP, and I can identify areas where Perficient can provide experience and value in their migration journey.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments professionally?
Perficient is my first experience as a consultant, and I am proud of my adaptability and the reviews I have received from my managers at Perficient and on the client side. I’m motivated by providing value and solutions to our clients that they didn’t know were possible.
Whether big or small, how do you make a difference for our clients, colleagues, communities, or teams?
Flexibility is my biggest asset when making a difference for our clients. When I first joined the team, our client needed a GCP crash course and asked me to fulfill the requirements of a data engineer. After some time, the need arose for a Dev Ops resource. While my Dev Ops experience was limited, I volunteered and began learning on the job. I am now my team’s main Dev Ops resource and have learned many valuable skills both for my role with the client and increasing my value at Perficient.

What advice would you give to colleagues who are starting their career with Perficient?
Be a sponge! There’s always something new to learn and an opportunity to grow everywhere. I’ve experienced the most growth in my career when I’m doing hands-on learning, and occasionally failing, in order to grow from mistakes.
Why did you choose Perficient, and what keeps you here?
I was referred by my mentor and friend, Dr. Chuck Brooks. I strive to become a technically proficient manager like him. We have had a long-lasting friendship and work relationship. I met him at my first job out of college and wasn’t sure how to best leverage my degree. Dr. Chuck took me under his wing and taught me the power and importance of data, turning his passion into mine.
I stay because I have fun, learn a lot, and feel valued at Perficient. Before joining Perficient, I was regularly doing the work of five or six different people in one role. Since joining Perficient, I’m focused on one client, so the depth of work, knowledge, and understanding of the project at large is much more comprehensive. I’m also able to build much deeper relationships with my team because of this.
