Pumpkin pie or apple pie?
This is a hard question, but I go with pumpkin pie.

For the good of humanity, coffee! 😊
 
What childish thing do you still enjoy?
Watching cartoons.
 
What is your most memorable childhood Halloween costume? 
A witch costume my mom had a lady make for me. The dress looked nothing any witch would wear, but at least I had the pointy hat! Worked for me!
 
What is your favorite fall activity?
Build a bonfire while drinking a pumpkin spice latte.

Midnight in Paris – it would be amazing to talk to icons of arts and literature.

My family.
 
If you could change one thing about society what would it be?

What does a consultant do?
As a consultant, it is my job to bring value to customers by analyzing their business, make recommendations, and develop solutions to help implement or enhance their use of Salesforce.
 
What attracted you to this role and company?
In one of my trips to Indianapolis, I attended a Salesforce User Group hosted by Appirio. It was then that I learned about the company and its wonderful culture. Although it took me a few years to make the move, when I did, I knew I was making the right decision. I love implementing Salesforce, analyzing businesses, and coming up with solutions that add value. So the role and company were a great fit!
