This week, we are proud to share Allison Boyce’s story.
Allison joined Sendero in our Dallas office in 2020. She graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in English and minors in business and Spanish. She has been involved in Organizational Change Management projects in the IT, construction, and utilities industries and is active on Sendero’s Marketing Committee.
We sat down with Allison to ask her about her experience as an Associate at Sendero.
What led you to Sendero?
While looking for a job after graduation, I wanted an opportunity that would challenge me, teach me a variety of practical skills, and allow me to combine my passion for writing with my interest in business. I was considering a career in consulting, and my interview experience with Sendero gave me the reassurance I needed that consulting was a great fit for me. I was also attracted to Sendero’s local model and the company’s commitment to giving back to their communities.
What stands out to you about Sendero?
Everyone is passionate about helping you develop professionally and grow in your career. At every turn, my supervisors, managers, career advisor, and other coworkers have checked in with me to encourage and support me. With their guidance, I have gained exposure in Practice Areas I am interested in and made strides towards achieving my personal goals. Having such a wonderful support system continually empowers me to try new things and step outside my comfort zone.
What has been your favorite part about being a consultant?
I really enjoy the fact that I can interact with different Senderoans on every project. I am able to broaden my internal network and learn from so many talented people.
What is something that you learned during Associate training that has stuck with you?
Saying that you don’t understand something is a key part of what it means to have integrity, one of Sendero’s core values. It is always better to admit that you don’t understand something than to say you do and struggle to complete a task as a result.
