When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see? How have you changed? What do you want to do that you haven’t done before? What is your purpose? How can you make a difference to the people around you?
These are all questions that I ask myself on a regular basis. Over the last six years, I have become a student of my own personal growth and discovery. I am inspired and motivated by human connection. People who know me describe me as a connector of people. There is nothing I like more than bringing together people who are like-minded or who can positively influence one another to achieve their goals or simply to share stories and take positive steps forward in their lives.
For the last 25 years, I have had the privilege and honor of working for some of the greatest brands in technology like AT&T, Cable and Wireless, Cisco, Salesforce.com, TiVo, and now… Palo Alto Networks. Over time, I have learned best practices in Enterprise Sales Strategy and Sales Operations as well as coached countless people on sales methodology, process, and customer engagement. I am passionate about people and I strongly believe in having a positive mindset that will impact your co-workers and company culture as well as influence your family and friends.
Throughout my career, people have put their trust in me in support of their professional goals and development which has further inspired me to work one-on-one as a coach and mentor. This passion has also led me to share my values on stage as a public speaker at various venues such as the 2014 Forrester Research Convention, as a panelist at the Domo Women in Business Tour, as a featured speaker at the 2016 Apttus Accelerate conference in San Francisco, and at the 2016 LinkedIn Sales Connect conference in New York. These events have given me the opportunity to discuss topics such as the personalization of data as well as discuss my experiences and advice around being a female business leader in the high tech industry. I bring to the table discussions about being on “the other side of sales” as a buyer and expose what salespeople really ought to know about their customers. The common thread is the underlying need for human connection.
Simply put, my greatest pleasure comes from seeing others achieve their wildest dreams, and I get to go to sleep knowing that I have inspired change.With that said, I have made it my life’s purpose to influence people in the most positive ways possible. Come join me on this journey and let’s build your dream career, company, and life. Decide, Declare, Do What It Takes!
As Vice President of Corporate Sales, I am proud to be a part of Palo Alto Networks. It’s a great company and we would love to have you join us!
