At the age of 4, my family relocated from New York City to Hong Kong. During my time in Hong Kong, I fell in love with Rugby and ended up receiving a professional contract out of high school to play for the Hong Kong National team. In 2017, my Rugby career ended, and I decided to pursue my other passion, technology. I moved back to Phoenix, enrolled in ASU, and have now recently graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science.
I joined Valore Partners as an IT Intern both for the opportunity to learn more about the IT world from the inside, and because of their flexibility when it came to my school schedule.
When offered a role as Associate Consultant post-graduation, I jumped at the opportunity. I knew I would get to continue to work alongside industry experts for a company that values their employees.
Jumping in headfirst on my first full-time development project was daunting for several reasons, but everyone on my team was always happy to give insight and support. Whether it was a quick ten-minute call going over some technical questions, or an hour long talk about career guidance as a Consultant, no one at Valore has ever made me feel like I was a burden, which gave me the confidence to take ownership over parts of the project earlier than I would have expected. Currently, I am working with C#/.NET Core, Angular, Azure & MongoDB.
My colleagues are some of the smartest, most interesting people I have ever met. Spanning from all ages and backgrounds, it is fun being able to interact with them daily. You’ll thrive with Valore Partners, if you are someone with a good work ethic, enjoy continuous learning, and excel in collaborative environments. In my opinion, being able to work on interesting problems, with interesting people, is as good as a job can get.
