Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
MBA - Take my accounting background and realize there was so much more to consider in the business world.
After several years focusing on external audit work, I found myself 'stuck' in the type of work I was on and made a jump into 'non-audit' work by taking on less desirable location to try something new
After years of balancing type of work, I felt 'stuck' again so I decided to do a secondment in our London office for 2 years.
After returning from UK, I took on new roles internally to focus on learning about emerging technology and how we could use them.
Embracing a technology focus, I re-branded myself as someone who is forward-thinking and an innovation leader.
