March 2018

Life is an incredible journey. Every day is a beautiful gift and an opportunity make a positive difference. I learned this at an early age watching how hard my mom, Sharon, worked to make sure we had the best life possible. At times, she worked multiple jobs so that we had all that we needed. As I grew up, her work ethic helped to create and influence my own. She showed me that anything is possible, even in the midst of adversity. During the most difficult times, you can and will survive.

Two years ago, Sharon was diagnosed with lung cancer. She was in perfect health and had absolutely no symptoms, but a newly developed test found a tennis ball-sized mass in her lung. The oncologist estimated it had been there for six to eight years.

What role did you do?

I joined HP in July 2017 as a Business Analyst for Sales & Strategy Commercial Channel covering UK & Ireland. My key responsibilities were analyzing weekly sales and presenting these to channel management, supporting our Partner Business Managers on key partner initiatives as well as managing any ad-hoc requests that came from management.
