Aubrey began her career with Praxis immediately upon graduating from Purdue University, where she received a bachelor’s degree in Management. She wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. “Being the oldest sibling, I knew was a great leader (read: good at bossing people around),” said Aubrey. “For that reason, consulting was an obvious fit. I have always been organized, customer service-oriented, and driven by learning new things.”
The type of work we do is what ultimately drew Aubrey to Praxis. It sounded exciting and interesting, full of many opportunities for new experiences that she hoped would be great for her career (turns out, they were!).
Aubrey was also drawn to the smaller size of Praxis, as it felt more comfortable to her and would give her the opportunity to make a bigger impact within the organization. However, Aubrey still gets the ‘big’ company feel by working with her large pharmaceutical clients. She says, “I believe this is the best of both worlds!”
Working for Praxis, Aubrey gets the opportunity to experience multiple areas of the life sciences industry and it allows her to play an active role in the company’s direction. “I don’t think many other consulting companies take employees’ opinions to heart as much as this one,” said Aubrey. “Praxis truly cares about their employees, and it shows in the way we are treated, rewarded and promoted. Merit matters here.”
“The best part of my day is when I’m able to fix a client’s problem or take something off their shoulders,” said Aubrey. “I can see and hear how relieved and appreciative they are.”
In her time with Praxis, Aubrey has worked her from entry level consultant to a manager. She earned her CAPM and then PMP certifications, which allows her clients to be confident in her project management skillset. Aubrey has excelled at her clients, and they rely on her as the standard to which they hold other Project Managers.
Part of Aubrey’s role at Praxis, in addition to successfully leading client projects, is to mentor and coach her junior colleagues. She has a passion for ensuring that our newest hires have the best onboarding experience possible. Aubrey works hard to ensure they have the right resources to get acclimated with Praxis methodologies and best practices, and sets the example for how we interact with our clients.
