What do you do at Counterpart? 

Talk a lot – sometimes making sense.  To quote Eddie Izzard: “70% of what people react to is the look. 20% is how you sound, 10% is what you say. So if you look and sound good…..Everyone will go wild!”

Striving to be the best me I can be

What’s the best thing about your job?

The people I work with

What has been your favorite project so far? 

That would be like picking my favorite child, sorry can’t do that

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I have 5 older sisters, ranging from 10-18 years older than me

What are 3 words to describe Counterpart?

Smart. Secure. Scaleable. Software.  (Haha it’s 4 but that was the first thing that popped into my head – it was our old tagline – thanks James Burnes)

What is your proudest moment at Counterpart?

A tie each time a client praises the work someone on the team has done
