GREAT TEAMS START WITH GREAT PEOPLE.
Meet Sang Moore.
What is your role at MorganFranklin, and what do you do?
I’m a senior manager for technology enablement team. I was hired to be the subject matter expert for credit cards and payment.
Please tell us about your professional background and what led you to pursue a career at MorganFranklin.
Having worked in the payments space for over a decade, I wanted to be able to use my skills and knowledge across multiple industry and clients. I like the constant change that comes with consulting.
What do you think is unique about the culture at MorganFranklin?
I love the people. Everyone works hard and plays hard.
As a former yoga instructor, have you found creative ways to still incorporate the practice into your daily life?
During the pandemic, I have asked teams to participate in some stretches before meetings. Especially in a high-paced and high-stress engagement, you must remind yourself and others to take care of mind and body.
What’s one go-to WFH office hack that makes your day more productive?
I use silicone ear bud tips to help drown out everyone else at home—the dog, band practice, school dance breaks, my husband’s conference calls, and everyone’s school noise. And I close my office door.
You’ve lived in the mid-Atlantic for almost all of your life. What do you enjoy most about this region?
The Northern Virginia and DC Metro areas are a wonderful intersection of north and south, urban and suburban, and of course the constant migratory nature of the military and diplomatic corps cycling through Washington and the military bases. This makes for a wonderful mixing bowl of people and experiences.
You’re very active in the Special Olympics community. Can you share why this community holds a special place in your heart?
My nine-year-old daughter has Down syndrome, which brings with it different parenting challenges compared to normally developing children. Special Olympics is a wonderful organization that brings opportunities and experiences for the kids but also provides a community for the parents.
We’ve heard you’re a “hostess with the mostest.” What’s one of the more memorable get-togethers you’ve hosted?
My neighborhood sponsors an annual Halloween parade and party, and a few years ago, I decided that I, as an adult, was bored. So we moved the parade and party to our street and added an annual chili cookoff. We often have over a hundred people and 12 to 15 chilis that compete for the honor of the first prize of a wooden spoon. Between the neighbors and the police and fire truck that escort the parade, it is an amazing afternoon of friends, fun, and good food.
