What’s the best part of your job?

One of the great things about working for Google is the opportunity to meet leaders across many industries. It is particularly rewarding to find insights from one industry that can be applied to others. I am currently seeing many such opportunities between retail and restaurants in the context of same-day delivery and store pickup solutions.

What inspires your leadership approach?

Perhaps the most important leadership lesson I have learned is to guide staff and partners toward the position you are advocating instead of forcing it on them. Folks like to think that ideas are their own, and I am more than happy to let others take credit for an idea to advance the broader opportunity for consumers, Google and our partners.

What do you cherish most about being a part of the industry?

My first job as a teen was working in my dad’s local camera store, before graduating to rotating produce at A&P and picking orders at Service Merchandise. This experience gave me a genuine appreciation for the critical role that retail plays in our local communities. I am proud to be working with retailers to as they evolve new ways to service their local shoppers and communities.
