This week, meet NYC-based Marianne Kelly, Sr. Dir., Avaya UC Collaboration, who has been with Carousel for 14 years.

What are your top 3 life highlights?
My family–husband and four children. 2. Backpacking through Europe for a few months in my early 20s. 3. Bicycling across the Golden Gate Bridge.

What was the most memorable gift you’ve given and why?
When one of my daughters was still in school there was a bet in her calculus class to see who could remember the most digits of pi. While they were memorizing decimals, I found a puzzle with a picture of a cherry pie on one side and pi digits into the hundreds on the back. Best SWAG I ever brought home from a conference! She still keeps it on display in her living room.
What do you consider the best technology?
Video conferencing has so many uses in both our business and personal lives.
What is most exciting about being a #CarouselCrew member?
Carousel is never boring and I am challenged every day.
