Tell us about your journey at Yelp

When I started at Yelp in April 2017, I did a complete 180 turn in terms of career, and this was my first sales job. I was an individual contributor for the first two years before taking a leadership role as a manager in 2019. I returned to be an individual contributor in March of 2020, where I tackled three more Yelp Sales Development Program promotions.

What’s the most rewarding part of working at Yelp?

The most rewarding thing about working at Yelp is the relationships that you form along the way. You are all in it together – going through success, change, and challenges. I know that the people I have been lucky to meet will be lifelong friends.

What do you enjoy most about working from home, and how do you stay productive?

Living in Chicago means commuting on cold days, so I am really enjoying not having to commute. I also enjoy the flexibility that my schedule brings.

What’s something that can only happen here?

I really think the people and community you meet at Yelp are unmatched. In my experience, I have met the best people here, and they will continue to be a part of my life for a long time.
