Catalyst staff spotlight: Jennifer Garcia, Client Partner
Tell us a little about yourself.
When I’m not doing my first job at Catalyst, I’m doing my second job: being a mom of 4 girls! Our kids are 10, 9, 8, and a year and a half. Between Concentrix and being a mom, I’m pretty busy! If I do have spare time, I like to work out – go for a run outside with our golden doodle, do a Peloton workout, or play sports! I really enjoy golf and sand volleyball; I try to play any chance I get. I also really enjoy cooking, which is a good thing because I’m basically a short-order cook with our family.
What do you do at Concentrix Catalyst?
When I started six years ago, I was a scrum master for a healthcare app. I have participated in several RFPs over the years and have worked in both healthcare and telecom. Currently, I’m working as a Director of Delivery, and helping with efforts to expand our telecom footprint to other companies.
What do you love about your work?
I would say the biggest thing I’m passionate about in my role is the team I work with. I want everyone that I work with to excel and enjoy what they do, feel that they have the opportunity to grow, and be reassured that someone is always there who has their back.
What is something you are most proud of in your work at Concentrix Catalyst?
Tough decision…so many cool projects! I’d say I’m extremely proud of the work we have done with a healthcare company we work with. So many amazing projects with this client. We’ve seen tremendous growth during 2020, which says a lot for the amazing people I get to work with every day. The pandemic forced everyone into their homes, and changed the way we do business, but we have still grown and expanded our team and offerings.
What is something you’ve learned in your time at Concentrix Catalyst?
Gosh, over six years I feel like I’ve grown a ton. Some are more specific to my position; others are more general to life. I think Catalyst has empowered me in finding confidence in myself to know when and how to do something and feel positive and reassured in decisions. Being a consultant is not an easy gig, and I think Catalyst has helped in learning how to approach different situations, thinking outside the box, figuring out “our story”, and then delivering and making sure we have a happy client.Salesforce
