As the Director of Microsoft Programs at Pax8, I am responsible for growing, strengthening, and enhancing our Microsoft relationship. I provide strategy and direction for education and enablement, company initiatives, and the “better together” experience for Pax8 partners. In my role, I support partners with go-to-market offerings to grow their cloud business and skill in new Microsoft areas. Before joining Pax8, I spent four years at Microsoft, holding multiple leadership roles, including Community Development and SMB/EDU Sales and Leadership. I have earned many accolades throughout my career, including the Microsoft Champion Award CPE in recognition of my accomplishments that supported the worldwide customer and partner experience while demonstrating extraordinary results. One fun fact about me: I didn’t eat any condiments until I was 21! No salad dressing, no ketchup, no mustard, no mayo – NADA!
