A Letter from Julie
Do you like a challenge? Do you like to try different things? Do you like to problem solve?
Yes, yes, yes…
I am where I am because I had a supportive father who recommended I get an Electrical Engineering degree. He, too, had an EE degree and was a Systems Engineer at IBM where he had accounts like Eli Lilly. He wrote me a letter when I was in high school that said if I got an EE degree, it would open doors for me. He said that I would have options. I could do EE work or I could do marketing, sales, or be a manager.
I am blessed to have had a father supporting me to pursue STEM. So, off to Purdue University I went and graduated with an EE degree. When I went around to different companies at the college fairs, Andersen Consulting drew me in: Do you like a challenge? Do you like to try different things? Do you like to problem solve? Yes, Yes and Yes!!! This led to 25 years at Andersen, which eventually became Accenture.
I started out programming…
then designed systems…
then managed teams developing and designing systems…
then oversaw complex systems project teams…
then learned how procurements work with State governments…
then led sales…
then led sales and delivery over the North America practice focused on human (social) services for state and local government growing the business by 150%…
then oversaw a handful of states across all areas of focus…
then decided it was time to take all that I learned and loved to grow and be an entrepreneur and became the owner of afit!
Three ways we problem-solve for our clients:
- Seeking to understand and listening to our clients
- Hiring and growing high-quality talent
- Focusing on solutions that create true outcomes for our clients
I believe in doing the right thing…by our clients and by our people. Integrity is a core value for a reason.
I also believe that at the end of the day, quality of life is what matters. It is the relationships we have and the people in our lives that matter. We spend the majority of our time each week at work so we want to enjoy who we work with and what we do. By focusing on doing the right thing, good things happen. This is the foundation of our culture at afit.
