What is your role/what are your responsibilities with Mobilitie?
As Market Intelligence Manager, I support our venue development business in both high-level strategy and specific, tactical programs. I lead efforts to monitor, collect, and analyze various data sources that help ensure Mobilitie, the venues, and the carriers are all successful in bringing people the coverage and capacity they need.
What’s one thing you love about Mobilitie?
The people at Mobilitie are hard-working, smart, and nice to be around. I love that I get to interact with so many great people across all parts of the organization! It’s always a pleasant surprise when a project reconnects me with a colleague that works in a different department than me too.
What’s one thing you’re proud of during your time at Mobilitie? Or, what’s been one of your favorite projects/deployments at Mobilitie?
Aiding in efforts to market and then manage BAI Communications’ acquisition of Mobilitie was a great challenge and huge collaborative effort, but I couldn’t be happier with the result. Being a part of BAI Communications has been an exciting, positive experience with a great outlook for the future, and I’m proud to have played my part in getting us there.
In your career, what have you found to be the biggest takeaway that you want others to know?
One of my biggest takeaways has been to make a habit of being available and helpful to those around you. When you can be a dependable aid to other people, they’ll be dependable when you need them in return.
Outside of work, what is something you enjoy doing in your free time?/Do you have a particular passion or hobby?
I love kayaking! I had to trade the peacefulness and discovery of Pacific Northwest lakes and rivers when I moved to Southern California, but the liveliness and excitement of our harbors and beaches are a great, different alternative. Spotting ocean wildlife like dolphins or sea lions from the intimate scale of a kayak is always amazing.
What would the perfect weekend consist of?
Paddle Crystal Cove during a summer morning and knock off a bucket list item by witnessing a breaching humpback whale. Then completing a home improvement project off the to-do list for our century home.
At Mobilitie, we’re creating a world of limitless possibilities through connectivity, all driven to go beyond the status quo to build what comes next.
The opportunity is open: be the one who makes it possible. Join us.
