1. How did you come to do what you do?
I started working as a proposal coordinator for an aviation composite supplier, and from there I interviewed with Arora and got the job here at EDI.
2. Was this a lifelong goal?
I’m not sure anyone reaches lifelong goals at 26. If they do, I need to talk to them!
3. What motivates you every day?
I find a lot of motivation in knowing that what I’m doing is making a difference to someone (or several people).
4. What makes you unique and different?
I’m probably the most positive person on a regular basis that I know. I almost always steer away from the negative to try and find excitement and value in the day to day.
5. What are your favorite types of projects to work on?
I mostly work on projects of the same goal, but I’ll go a step further and say that the best part of that is seeing when all of what the team has been working on intersects with the customer team finding that the changes we’re making for them are going to be helpful and provide a lot of value. I can’t wait to watch that continue as some of the projects I’ve been assisting with since I started come closer to their launch into go live.
6. What are your future career goals?
I always thought I’d be working in Marketing or some sort of social, internal capacity. The more I work in Project management, I see definitely a path forward here, too, and I’ve really been enjoying learning the process and working with the team and clients.
7. What is the best career lesson you’ve learned so far?
I think something I do very well because I had to learn it in a previous role is time management. Accompanying that would probably be taking notes on everything. It’s incredibly important and saves a lot of time and stress for everyone when everything is written down and can be referred to.
8. Tell us what your day-to-day looks like at EDI?
My day-to-day consists of a mixture of team meetings to go over project updates, assisting in solving support tickets for projects and getting project hours up to date and accurate, and overall assisting the project managers.
9. What do you enjoy most about working at EDI?
Everyone who works for EDI is very goal driven and extremely kind. It makes for an excellent work culture, and I can’t wait to see more people join the team.
10. What has been your favorite memory while working at EDI?
I was asked to assist with a conference recently, and that was a blast. I got to meet several clients I’d been working with virtually, learn more about Maximo and made personal connections with other attendees that all work in the industry.
11. Outside of work, what do you like to do for fun?
I play on a softball team on Sundays and do CrossFit or yoga most days, spend time with family. I also love going to see movies, reading, and taking my dog on walks or to the dog park.
