Melanie Philion has worked more 10 years in technology as a Functional Consultant. Working in the technology industry was never on her radar. Previously, she worked in Sales in Marketing in different Canadian companies until her supervisor came to her and advised her to work in technology.
Today she is highly skilled in Technology, Consulting, Sales, and Marketing. She is a Power Platform Consultant in CRM, Dynamics 365 (Flow aka Power Automate,PowerApps, PowerBI) and oversees the implementation of Microsoft CRM 2011 or 2013, 2015 in companies training end users and super users to use Microsoft CRM.
In 2011, Melanie jumped into a different career path and never looked back. She started in her new position at ADNM International, a company based in Laval, Quebec, Canada, as a CRM Functional Consultant. In this role, she learned everything about Microsoft Customer Relationship Management, a software that helps companies to managed sales activities and supply customer service.
While working at InMind, she had the opportunity to work with important customers like the Veterans Affairs of United States. During those years, she got married in the Dominican Republic, a place that was also not on her radar until she decided to go on an all-inclusive vacation in Dominican Republic with her future husband. That trip turned into the best adventure of their life and developed friendships with people that will last a lifetime.
In 2016, Melanie and her husband decided to relocate to the United States. She started the long journey of requesting her green card and got a new position with SIS based in Atlanta, GA. In 2017, her husband, their 2-year-old son, and their lovely dog Moka, moved to the United States of America. Even though the countries are side-by-side, they are so different. She says the experience is entering into a completely new country with a new language, new rules, and new processes.
Today, she wants to give back some of what she has been given in life, teaching as many women as possible to start a career in technology. Contact Melanie on her on her LinkedIn profile https://www.linkedin.com/in/melanie-philion-25403565.
