Q: What’s your role at Populi, and what does an average day look like for you?

A: I’m the Salesforce Architect for Populi. In that role, my average day spans a broad range of interactions and responsibilities. On any given day, I may be writing code for a new feature, planning out the architecture for a future release or working with other teams to design architecture for cross-product functionality. I also work with our Customer Success team on implementation strategies for our products.

Q: What do you like most about working for Populi? 

A: The people, and what we’re here to do. I get to work with smart, talented, creative people who are all invested in creating a product that is changing the way patients receive care.

Q: What do you think is the most important benefit of the detailed healthcare analytics and insights that Populi provides? 

A: The ability to provide indicators of which persons could best benefit from a given program, and help to identify where healthcare programs need to grow in order to provide optimal care for a given set of needs in their communities.

Q: Why should someone join your team at Populi? 

A: It’s never boring. We push the boundaries of technology to find better solutions to meet the needs of our clients, which gives us the latitude to explore new capabilities and choose the best technology solutions for our needs. The Product team has great ideas, and they empower us as technologists to seek out better ways to implement those ideas for our clients. In the Salesforce ecosystem, we’re an ISV partner and have a terrific relationship with Salesforce. 

Q: What’s your favorite way to unwind?

A: It varies. I like bike riding with my husband, creating digital art pieces and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I enjoy our adventures: we go to renaissance festivals and participate in local festivities here on the island. We did our first Mardi Gras parade this year, which was a lot of fun. We live near Johnson Space Center, and we enjoy going to see the exhibits and passing our love for science and technology onto our extended family.

Q: Do you have a favorite quote?

A:  I do. One of my favorite authors when I was growing up was Robert Heinlein, and one of his passages has always stuck with me, and has influenced my career in many ways: “A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”

Q: Which fictional character do you relate to most? 

A: The fictional character I’d most like to emulate would be “The Doctor” (Dr. Who). Even after living hundreds of years, and having untold experiences, he/she still finds joy and delight in each new opportunity to learn something new. I try to live my life that way, to enjoy every opportunity to learn and experience new things.

Q: If you could have any exotic animal as a pet, which would it be? 

A: Some might say that with the family I have, I already have a zoo. 😀
