Our self-proclaimed “Salesgirl”

For the first time in my career, I can honestly say that I am 100% confident in the products that I sell. That’s because our entire team consists of people who genuinely care – they want all of our products to be superior. I know my clients will be supported throughout every stage – sales, migration, onboarding, support and training. We are all here for you.

What brought me here

Although I have been in the software sales space for a while, I began my career quite differently. After graduating from college with a degree in Criminal Justice, I accepted a job as a Probation Officer in DeKalb County, Georgia. I managed domestic violence cases and helped probationers change their behavior in order to lead productive and healthy lives. After 5 years in law enforcement, I decided to make a complete 180° change.

I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina and began working for IBM as a Sales Site Manager – where I supervised over 30 employees specializing in administrative, sales and technical fields. My time at IBM was a springboard into my role of Inside Sales Manager at BMC Software. I sold an IT platform -- ranging from help desk solutions to enterprise technologies. All of my experiences have led me right here. Along the way, I have learned the value of being transparent, upfront and honest and I bring that to the table everyday.

How I balance life

I don't even know that I have balance at all. I am definitely an "all in" kind of person, no matter what I am doing. I'm married to John and we currently have 3 fur babies. We strive to create lasting memories together, along with our friends and family, always focusing on experiences rather than “stuff.” We are big sports fanatics and have a house divided when it comes to the NFL – things get a little heated when the Eagles play the Redskins around here!

My favorite quote

"You will be too much for some people; those aren't your people" -- Glennon Doyle. A few years ago I realized that people I thought were part of my "friend" category were actually just "acquaintances." It's very important to know the difference.

What I want to know most in life

Do we really have “free will?” I'd like to think that I have control, but do I really? On second thought, don't tell me the answer.

Who inspires a sense of adventure in me

My sense of adventure comes from my dad. My dad was the friendliest, nicest guy on the planet. He was always open to meeting new people and trying new things. My dad would get on a plane, a train or hop in a car to go and do anything! My desire to create lasting memories through various adventures comes from him.
