Current job: Experience Director at Oracle

Main job responsibilities: Oracle helps businesses reimagine what’s possible. Almost everywhere we look emerging technologies are disrupting old ways of doing things and creating new ones. The role of an Experience Director is to take a human-first approach to technology. We use design thinking to co-create inspiring experiences with businesses and then bring those ideas to life with technology.

What do you like best about your job?

I’m always learning something new.

What have you been up to since graduating?

Trying to get used to December being a summer month. A couple of years ago I moved to Sydney. It’s been a great experience. And a great opportunity to see and learn from a new part of the world.

How did the Love School of Business prepare you for your career?

The Chandler Family Professional Sales Center was an invaluable resource. I’m very grateful for Elon and the Chandler Family’s investment in the sales curriculum. And you wouldn’t believe how many people I’ve come across that applaud Elon’s foresight to offer that program.

How did Elon’s liberal arts curriculum help strengthen your understanding of your business major and your overall educational experience?

It broadens your perspective. There’s a lot of value in taking principles from other domains and applying them in new contexts.

What did you enjoy most about being a Love School of Business student?

The friendships. By far the most valuable thing I left with.

What advice do you have for current Love School of Business students?

Embrace a learner mentality.
