1. Why did you join the technology industry?
I was working at a call centre and when they landed a contract for a large IT company the opportunity opened up.

2. Who is the person who has inspired you professionally?
There are so many that I can’t choose just one. Over the last few years working in the IT channel I’ve been inspired by many of the women I work with regularly. Especially the moms juggling work and family in positions from Inside Sales to VP or C level.

Make the most of every opportunity presented to you.

4. How do you think we can encourage more women in tech?
Women in tech telling their stories and initiatives like this one to support each other and provide inspiration. Corporate sponsorships for girls are also great.

5. What is the best part of your job?
The diverisity. In my position I have the opportunity to travel, meet end users, work with partners and other vendors as well as many levels within our organization. There is never a dull moment!
