I am a solution architect with Accenture Operations and I'm a military hire. My last year or so in the Air Force was a really unique opportunity. I moved into a role where I was an integration lead and I helped plan and bring together three different offices that have three very different ways of doing things. That was really interesting going through change management with the government and that experience was actually what kind of led me to look at Accenture.
One of the things I learned in the military was how to adapt, and when I first got to Accenture, I was on a project where I had to architect a really large deal. I was given the chance to stretch and grow but I had a safety net of a support network in the background, helping me, encouraging me and teaching me the right way to do it. We came out and won the deal and it was a really great experience. I do think the experience I had in the military really helped prepare me to take on that challenge and not shy away and really just get the job done. Since then we've developed a military mentorship program and so I've actually been paired with a couple of more recent military hires to be a buddy or a mentor for them and be another friendly person for them to talk to or share anything with. It helps that we have similar connections or know similar people from our military background.
I am a consulting, business outsourcing and operations professional with 15 years of experience in numerous high-performing and hands-on leadership positions. I have significant experience building effective teams to handle diversity and change while performing a myriad of difficult functions. I am also an experienced military operator and project manager with background in sales and strategy. Moreover, I am a pragmatic thinker and creative practitioner who understands the importance of vision, knowledge management and leader involvement to inspire executives and employees in building dynamic, high-performing organizations.
Coming into Accenture as a junior military officer I didn't know a lot about financial services, banking, mortgage and foreclosures. However, I had great team leads that came and allowed me to ask questions and learn more about our process, how to improve it, some of our gaps and learn more about what I can do as a leader to help them succeed. I've been through a lot of different scenarios and situations because the mortgage industry is ever changing and that's definitely allowed me to grow as a professional. Accenture is looking to hire 5,000 vets and spouses, which is unbelievable and awesome.
