I wake up on a Monday morning for my family. I want to make sure my family is taken care of. That my kids can participate in activities and that my wife is happy. I want a better future for them. Qualtrics makes it easy to come into work and provide for my family. I love the people I get to work with here because Qualtrics attracts individuals of unique quality. Everyone is intelligent, driven, hard-working, committed, excited, and they all bring a lot of momentum.
What attracted you to Qualtrics in the first place?
I was very comfortable with the job and company I was at before Qualtrics. I never thought I would venture out because I enjoyed it. Qualtrics reached out to me, and I spent time seeing what the company had to offer. Their vision and the type of people I interacted with at Qualtrics instantly made it a place I saw myself working at. It definitely took some time to make the decision, but it was easy once I understood where I would fit in with the vision of Qualtrics and how I could help drive the takeover of XM.
What made you want to get into technology consulting?
I had the desire to help people and companies use new products that allow them to be more effective, efficient, and profitable through automation and technology. As a technology consultant, it is important to be creative, intelligent, a subject matter expert, and customer-obsessed.
What is your top #LifeHack?
