What do you find most fulfilling about being a consultant?

I like doing project work. Project work provides the opportunity for growth, both personal and professional. I find it fulfilling to go into a client’s site and help them resolve an issue that best serves their needs. My projects are usually system implementations which I enjoy as they are tangible—something where people can see the work.

What would you say are the main values you hope to bring to your consulting approach?

I bring confidence to the client by assuring them that, together, we will get the best possible results. Honesty and integrity are important to me. I really like to honor those values at my client sites.

What is the most rewarding experience or situation you’ve encountered in this job?

It is rewarding to meet a client, get to know them and then work together to achieve a common goal. Not only is achieving the final goal professionally rewarding, but often the growth experienced with each client is also personally rewarding. Additionally, it is very fulfilling working, supporting, and pushing forward with the Harbinger team and share in the sense of accomplishment that comes with completing a project.
