What’s your work-life philosophy?
Work hard, play hard…. that means taking care of my body, mind, heart and soul – so I can be my best, professionally and personally.

What do you like best about working at UDT?
For me, it is the people. From the first day of my internship at UDT until now, the people at UDT have supported me, coached me, challenged me, and integrated me into their team. I have always been treated with respect and motivated by leadership. Truly a great team of people to work with.

How is UDT helping public and government entities provide greater access to information?
UDT is bringing the most innovative and secure solutions to our government clients to enable access to data and information wherever it resides – public cloud, private cloud, secure data centers. We are helping our government agencies navigate the technology ecosystem to select and integrate a wide-variety of devices – printers, mobile devices, laptops so their people can gain access the data and information they need to do their job efficiently and safely.

How are government entities investing in technology?
Government entities are investing in the technologies needed to operate in today’s digital economy intelligently, securely, and at scale. From printers and devices for their people, to storage and processing power for their data, technology investment is a critical for government agencies and they are looking for quality companies to partner with and source their technology hardware, software, or services requirements.

What do you enjoy most working in federal sales?
It is very exciting to have the opportunity to work with a knowledgeable group of people and be able to bring the best of UDT to our federal clients in defense, intelligence, public safety, civilian agencies, etc. I am learning so much every day!

What is the best professional advice you would give?
In my young professional life, I would have to say that confidence, collaboration, and networking are the key for success in launching one’s career. These have certainly helped me in the launching of my career at UDT.

People would be surprised if they knew you…
Most people would probably be surprised to know that when I am not working at UDT, they could catch me playing on the Nova Southeastern University Women’s Basketball team as I returned to Nova to pursue my MBA and complete my red-shirt eligibility to play basketball.

What do you enjoy doing in your time off?
Spending time relaxing and enjoying life with family and friends 😊
