My road in life took a while to figure out.
Went to college to figure out what I wanted to do.
Took a college job in my admissions office and became a tour guide, perfecting my presenting skills.
Studied Politics and Writing but still wasn't sure what to do with it.
Became an Admissions Counselor when I graduated.
After a year, moved to Boston to be close to friends, and joined a start up working with colleges.
4 years my company was acquired by Hobsons and I took the plunge to go to Ohio.
Teaching schools to implement our software, I learned a lot about different types of colleges.
One presentation and I became the 1st Solutions Consultant at Hobsons. Today I lead an amazing team!

Day to Day

People rely on me to be a sales person, a product manager, a consultant and expert as well as a mentor, coach and student. I spend my day preparing and practicing for upcoming presentations followed by assisting development by reviewing product functionality, providing feedback based on my admissions experience. I also work with colleges to challenge them to improve and optimize how technology is used on campus. It's my job to connect the dots between technology and the people using it.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

In my case, exposure to the industry I now work in was key. Solutions Consulting exists at many different types of software companies. For me, my industry is higher education so my college job working in Admissions has been as important as my college major. I also minored in writing. At the time, I didn't think much about it. I took the classes because I felt it was a weakness of mine. As a result, I learned how to write well, especially technical writing, and it's been a major asset.
