What’s your backstory (how did you come to be working for Striata)?
I have always been passionate about people, technology, as well as the creativity and freedom that combines them.

Striata offered the perfect place for me to combine my passions and explore the power of email.

You work for a digital company, what is it about digital that you are passionate about?
I love that living in a digital world means that we are all global citizens with information, facts and figures at our fingertips. Digital gives us the power to talk to almost anyone, to educate them, to help simplify their lives and to receive that in return.
How do you think digital is going to change your life personally in the next 5 years?
So much of my life is already lived in the digital space. I can only imagine this will increase over the next 5 years as technology advances. As innovations like AI become increasingly integrated in our lives, getting things done quicker and more efficiently will become our reality. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds!
How do you think digital is going to change businesses in the next 5 years?
Businesses that are not operating in a digital world will battle to compete with their digital counterparts. As consumers become more tech savvy and digitally minded they will favor businesses that operate in the same space. Consumers will expect the convenience that digital affords them.
