How has your career grown since starting at the company?

In my year and a half at Zoom, I’ve had the privilege of moving from a BDR, to a Team Lead, to an Account Executive. Through each step, my manager was transparent, approachable & committed to my own professional growth. Zoom recognizes that not all career paths are the same, and each manager takes an individual approach to identify what drives you.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

One of the things I love about Zoom is the trust they have in me that allows me to be creative. Being a leader at Zoom I'm able to watch my team collaborate and teach each other. For me that's creativity. People with different ideas and experiences working together with one purpose. By empowering people to be creative you open the door to success.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Teamwork is in our day to day, not only with other BDRs, where each can provide different points of view in a situation, but also with the Account Executives that are an indispensable guide to succeed when looking for new clients.
