What are some things you learned at the company?

I have seen how fostering a supportive, collaborative environment that collectively celebrates each individual’s success can empower people to rise to their full potential. I continuously learn about cutting-edge technologies by working with innovative companies, and how helping them secure an R&D tax credit can bolster future reinvestment in R&D.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We encourage new ideas be voiced and given the chance to be pursued. People regularly join in entry-level roles and grow with the company, go on to manage teams, and ultimately become a key part in driving the strategy for the business. No matter how long someone has been with us they have the ability to influence our growth and diversification.

Being connected with my team is a top priority. People communicate in different ways, so I’ve setup several different channels by which the team can share updates.
