Our next brave interview subject is Senior Business Consultant Cindy Weber. Here’s what drive’s Cindy’s pursuit of excellence:
What makes you excited to start work each day?
For the most part, I’ve worked for clients that are headquartered in the Mid-west, and it makes me feel good to be contributing to local companies and workforce. In many instances, their impacts are national and international, also.
What’s your biggest motivation in life?
First and foremost, my family’s well-being. Second, to be a contributor to making the world a better place.
What is the most important accomplishment of your career?
I can’t say ‘the most important’. I value that I have help set up Project/Program Management Offices, led a project to create the first data warehouse for a laboratory, implemented a health care records system (benefiting patients and health care partner), mentored up-and-coming project managers and contributed to Trissential’s intellectual property.
What do you do when you are not working?
Camping and hiking are my favorite past times. A few years ago, my husband (Bertrand) and I did a 4 day hike of the Inca Trail in Peru.
What was your inspiration to enter the technology field?
30+ years ago, I recognized that technology could make a person’s working life more efficient, less manual and redundant, opening up time for creative, innovative adventures.
Who is your biggest hero?
My husband, Bertrand. He is the Director of Culinary and Wellness Services in Minneapolis School District. His work with many school districts, farmers and the food supply chain has awed me. His passion and tenacity motivates me on a daily basis.
What’s the best part about being a Senior Business Consultant?
The opportunities and varieties of businesses I get to work with and for.
How would you describe Trissential in five words or less?
People-Oriented, Trustworthy, Compassionate, Open Minded, Fun
What would you be doing if you hadn’t gone into technology consulting?
