What do you do at Panther Labs?
I see myself as a connector. I work across business functions to increase productivity and readiness for both our sales teams and our customer success teams in an effort to ultimately create the best and most consistent employee and client experience. For me, it’s all about making it easier for you to do your job, removing obstacles, and making it fun.
How long have you been at Panther Labs?
Since Oct 4 2021! But it feels way longer, in a good way.
What’s the most exciting part of your day-to-day work?
I love seeing the way we solve problems. Even though I don’t understand all the technicalities (yet), the way everyone jumps in to solve customer issues and to help each other learn is incredibly motivating.
What has been your key to success at Panther?
The people. The trust, confidence, and conviction everyone has in the company and each other is inspiring. It allows you to take chances and lean into new challenges without fear of embarrassment or inexperience.
What do you feel makes Panther different from other companies you’ve worked at?
I came from a company that I worked at for a decade. My greatest fear leaving that company was being able to find my tribe again. I was shocked in the best of ways to find that sometimes it takes a leap of faith to find your tribe. The absolute smoothness of the transition to Panther and the welcoming attitude of the people was incredibly refreshing and surprising in a time when everything is virtual.
Who inspires you the most? Why?
My husband. He challenges me every day and he gave me the confidence to come to Panther – leaving behind a stable career in an entirely different industry. I strive to be as level-headed, calm, and objective as him, but I usually fall short. Fortunately, I have a better sense of humor to counterbalance.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
All things food related – whether it’s going to new restaurants, traveling to new cities to explore different cuisines, cooking an extravagant meal, or attempting to replicate the most recent British Bake Off delights.
If you could visit any city in the world, where would it be? Why?
I’ve been lucky to have had a chance to travel a ton, but I still have yet to visit Amsterdam or Reykjavík. The uniqueness of the cities and landscapes, art, food, and culture would be wonderful to experience.
