GET TO KNOW STEPHANIE IN A FEW WORDS:
Why did you decide to pursue the consultant path?
I choose to be a full-time consultant because I found, throughout my career, I was placed in roles to help with process improvements, and, once processes were streamlined, I tended to miss the “clean-up” process. When consulting came my way, I thought, what better way to continue doing what I love by being exposed to multiple companies in various industries with a focus on project-based work that is in line with my strengths and adding value in what I enjoy most.
What expectations should clients have from you as a consultant?
Clients should expect to receive a commitment to excellence, dedication, team player, motivated self-starter, and passionate learner who adapts well to changing environments. My results-driven character is attributed to my attention to detail, outstanding multi-tasking, organization, and data mining skills. Clients will always get the best from me.
