Consultant

I graduated from the University of Houston in 2009 with a BSc in Computer Information Systems. Excited at the opportunity to start my career in a new environment, I moved to New York City and spent a few years working for a telecommunications company before starting my consulting career at Accenture in 2011.
 
While at Accenture, I spent 7 years working across multiple industries including financial services, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, energy and digital. I specialized in large scale technology driven programme delivery and had the privilege of tackling some of the most critical problems on my client’s agenda from handling strategic spectrum negotiations to post-merger integration work. Along the way, I learned the value of teamwork and leadership in helping clients achieve their key objectives.   
 
I joined Berkeley in 2019 because I was attracted to its collaborative culture, dedication to always ‘do the right thing’ for the client, and the opportunity to work for a small company. As important to me were the people I met at Berkeley who are talented, continuously living Berkeley values, and always willing to help.
 
I live in New York City and outside of work I enjoy boxing, road trips and trying new restaurants around the city. I recently completed my first half marathon and plan to tackle the New York City marathon next.
