What drew you to Alchemy?
In my previous role at Workday, I had the opportunity to support the recruiting efforts of the Higher Education organization. I loved every minute of it. The excitement for the highly anticipated launch of Workday Student was palpable. I jumped at the chance to join Alchemy and be a part of building a team that would implement this revolutionary product. I also wanted to be with an organization that had a clear vision of their mission—higher education and Workday. This niche focus will enable Alchemy to become the master of our craft.
