What projects are you most excited about?

I'm incredibly excited about the next wave of our integration strategy, and as the future platform blending communities and payments. We are the leading innovation platform in small business CRM / marketing, and that product leadership has earned us a lot of inbound integration interest, so we have this unique opportunity to shape our partner APIs!

Being able to communicate with and understand each of these stakeholders needs is critical and continues to be an area of growth for me.
