- How and when did you come to Sutherland?
I had just finished University and a family friend had done an interview with Sutherland, and they asked if he knew anyone who would be interested in working here and that was it. I have been employed here since April 2016.
- What gets you up in the morning? No, not your dog or alarm….but what really drives you to get up and give your best each day?
I have a beautiful 4-year-old daughter, and she’s so awesome. Just the thought of her motivates me to achieve greatness.
- Who at Sutherland has made the biggest impact on your career and why?
Odetta Rockhead Kerr has made the biggest impact on my career. As a woman, she has accomplished so much with hard work and dedication. She strives to motivate and aspire individuals in everything she does.
- What do you love most about your role at Sutherland?
I love working with people. The account that I work on is very complex and challenging, hence the job is not repetitive and boring.
- What’s the best advice you’ve ever received at work or in life?
The best advice I have received since I have been here is from my team manager, which is don’t take my task too personal. I found myself being so annoyed and worked up with some of the customers I dealt with, to the point I would leave work with a headache. One day my team manager called me in a meeting and said “I’m going to tell you the same thing I told myself when I just started this job, don’t take your job too personal.”
- Where do you see yourself in five years?
I’m currently working on starting my own business, so in the next five years hopefully that dream will be a reality.
- What three words best describe you?
The three words that best describe me are humble, ambitious, and caring.
