Paint a picture of what you are doing now.

Currently, I am a business consultant at Oracle, helping to modernize citizen experience engagements throughout the public sector with Oracle cloud applications. Specifically, I assist Canadian public sector organizations with locating weaknesses in the flow of information from the public sector to citizens. I then provide consultation on how to alleviate these pain-points using modern citizen experience applications and generate IT solution plans.

How did participating in 21CL change you and/or lead you to where you are now?

The 21CL summer programs introduced me to highly motivated students who made me want to push myself outside of my comfort zone in a professional and personal manner. Whether we were talking to execs at Coca-Cola, completing team challenges, or playing games as a group, I felt constantly inspired to be a better version of myself. 21CL helped me build a foundation that led me to be successful for 4 years as a student at Duke University and now as a first-year professional in corporate America.

What was a memorable or ‘aha’ moment in 21CL? (Particular program, meeting a professional, etc.?)

I remember completely fan-girling over the woman at Coca-Cola responsible for conceptualizing and implementing the marketing campaign for the “Fantanas” (Don’t you wanta Fanta girls). Those commercials were immensely popular back then, and hearing her speak about the behind-the-scenes marketing processes and initiatives at Coke laid my foundation and interest in marketing. To this day, as I consider the long-term goals of my professional career, an option that I weigh heavily is getting an MBA and joining an innovative marketing team.
