What opportunities have helped shape your career?

Having a university professor in 2006 who told me “Janet, you really should pursue technology. It’s a rapidly growing field and there are not enough women in it. Once you graduate, you and your skillset will be on high demand.” Because of him, it led me to my IT Internship at Weyerhaeuser where I met my internship mentor, Joseph Peck. During the internship he gave me real work. He carved out a statement of work that he needed to deliver to his organization and had me lead the project: an intranet redesign project where I needed to help all business units migrate their current intranet page onto a CMS (content management system) and train them to be stewards of their own content.  Being part of Boeing’s IT Rotational Program allowed me to experience different IT organizations every six months for two years. Finally, it was Joseph Peck who brought me into PwC where I have the opportunity to consult clients in technology across the globe.
