What’s your role at WP Engine?
My role at WP Engine is New Business Acquisition with SMB Sales.
Can you describe a typical day in your role?
One of the reasons I love WP Engine and my job is because every day is different. I interact with customers and potential customers on a daily basis—so you really get to know the people you’re serving and understand their needs. Sometimes that’s spent on the phone, sometimes they’re face-to-face meetings.
It’s really exciting to work with clients and discuss how the WP Engine platform can help them succeed and reach their business goals. Every story, every customer, and every website is different.
I also get the chance to attend industry events and exhibitions, so I get to see our team in action and interact with customers and prospects. Working the booth is a blast — happy customers constantly pop by and tell you how much they love WP Engine.
What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is the knowing that the solution we provide really works. It feels great to have a customer come back and say that they are amazed with our service and we truly delivered on all of our promises.
You recently visited the states for WP Engine’s “All-Hands” week, a bi-annual event where all of its employees come together at the Austin headquarters. How was that experience?
Amazing! It’s great to able to come over to the headquarters regularly and socialise with the teams that we collaborate with on a daily basis. WP Engine makes a massive effort to keep the London office included in meetings through video conferencing, but it’s good to be able to say thank you in person!
All-Hands is great with employees being awarded for their hard work and our leadership team informing us of what’s to come. You leave feeling like WP Engine truly values their staff. Austin is a great city, it’s known as the live music capital of the world and also is a city full of foodies, so lots of great places to eat!
What are some of your favorite things about working and living in London?
London never sleeps! There is always something to do and somewhere new to explore. It’s a culturally diverse city full of opportunity.
What are some of your favorite spots to experience activities, cuisine, etc. in the city?
There are so many! Kaspers at the Savoy is great for a glamorous night out, or if you want something simple and homely BIRD in Dalston is great! There are so many attractions is London but there’s nothing better than hanging out in one of the city’s beautiful parks on a summer’s day.
What are some of your hobbies outside of work?
Being a mum, I don’t have too much time for hobbies anymore but I do enjoy a spot of Muay Thai boxing training.
What is your spirit animal?
What TV show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta/Orange County…I know complete trash TV!
