Rightpoint Featured Consultant

Kristina Fitzgerald

What is your job function? What do you do?
The Michigan office is still pretty new, so we have that start-up feel where everybody wears a bunch of hats. I primarily focus on infrastructure and SharePoint core, along with some of the cool partner products out there like Microsoft, NewsGator, K2, and Metalogix.  

What is the most unique aspect of your role?
Because I pretty much never say “no”, I get to work with some of the more esoteric parts of the SharePoint platform or third party partner product.

How are you "customer obsessed"?
I’ve always been excited for the next puzzle, the next project, the next challenge. My customers are my source of excitement!

How does Rightpoint's culture help you to be "customer obsessed"?
I'm always eager to see what my teammates have come up with, and I love that I can bounce any and all questions, ideas and suggestions off of them to come up with the best solution for the customer.

What was the most interesting or unique job that you ever had?
I’ve performed in 3 dinner theater productions and, one time, I was the murderer!

What was something interesting about the town or city where you grew up?
Starting this year, Detroit will be home to the world’s largest urban farm. Over a 140 acres of blighted land is being transformed into a hardwood tree farm.

If you could travel anywhere in the world that you have never visited, where would it be and why?
I think it would be so cool to visit New Zealand and get to see a kakapo parrot. There are still less than 200 of them alive, but the conservation efforts of the international community have been phenomenal and they’re making a comeback!

What was the last book you read? Would you recommend it?
I read Divergent before I took my teenage nieces to the movie. As for recommending it, I would say there’s a time, a place, a mindset, and an age for all things…

If you had to give up electronic devices for one week, what would you miss most?
Probably my speedometer gage in my car, but then again, maybe not.
