I am a Principal Consultant with Valore Partners. I bring 25+ years of experience in Microsoft-focused technologies, 16 years of which employed at Microsoft. I discovered Valore Partners after seeking local Phoenix-based consulting companies with a heavy emphasis on Microsoft solutions. After meeting with management staff and some of the partners, I realized the culture and areas of focus were right in line with my own. Coming from a very large organization, I have found it refreshing to be able to have a greater impact on the success of the company, as well as build personal rapports with the entire leadership team instead of just peers and direct reports.
Everyone I’ve had a chance to interact with at Valore have proven to be extremely knowledgeable in their respective technologies and always willing to assist at a moment’s notice. It helps keep everything running smoothly. In my opinion, being a successful consultant hinges on a passion and desire to stay on top of technologies and trends. This involves a fair amount of research, testing, and troubleshooting, offering new challenges and keeping you on your toes. Every new project is a chance to help clients effectively implement those projects and act as a trusted advisor.
I am not one that believes in the traditional notion of Life + Work balance. There’s only life. Your job is one component of your life and you ultimately choose which areas of your life desire/require the most attention and focus. With that said, I feel it is important to give both professional and personal aspects of life the same attention levels. It is refreshing to work for a company that does not expect you to regularly stray from that type of commitment.
