Why did you join AlphaSights?
I always wanted to work for a high-growth firm and found the energy of the company extremely appealing. Every day I’m inspired by driven and smart people and challenged to keep raising the bar in one of the most innovative cities in the world, New York. 

Tell me about your position at AlphaSights.
My role is to support the learning and development of AlphaSights’ most valuable resource: its people. In particular, the professional development team provides our employees with the opportunity to continuously grow their skills and ultimately achieve their personal and professional goals, guiding them to unleash their highest potential. 

What is your greatest success so far?
Being able to work at scale, whether it’s successfully training a professional development associate, scaling our survey process or transitioning our AlphaCurriculum to a blended learning model so that everyone’s time is maximized. 

What makes AlphaSights unique?
The high level of autonomy and support you receive. If you’ve got an idea, everyone is not only open to hearing it, but also to you executing and tinkering with it. As I’m a creative person, the opportunity to constantly brainstorm, iterate and engage in creative destruction with the support of my manager and the executives is incredibly energizing. 

What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about helping people. I strive to ensure that every decision I make is rooted in compassion, and see this incorporated in my two roles at AlphaSights. As a professional development associate I help employees reach their best potential by cultivating their commercial, interpersonal, and leadership skills, which in turn accelerates their career. As an iMentor partnership leader and Charity House board member I provide fulfilling volunteer opportunities for US employees to give back to the cities they work in.
