Before data became “cool” Sol was pioneering some of the earliest advancement in the space and advises companies to avoid over-architecting a solution, know that AI is not a silver-bullet, and know when you need a mechanic vs. a mechanical engineer when solving a problem.

Skilled at creating a vision and developing linkages between strategy and execution in order to build a cohesive path forward, Sol’s specialty is influencing change throughout an organization, and rolling up her sleeves and getting into the details while keeping the strategic intent in mind. Energetic and a goal oriented thought leader, Sol firmly believes in un-complicating the complicated, and is skilled at coupling her technical acumen with story-telling abilities to articulate the business value.

Sol excels at helping organizations become innovative while deploying the fundamentals, challenging the ‘because we’ve always done it this way’ mindset, creating energy and excitement in those that are embracing the change, and adopting the mindset that it's okay to lean into technology as a competitive advantage, while preserving the legacy in which a company was founded upon.
