Quote

Prior to being hired at Skyward, I used the software as a school office manager and fell in love with it. My history as a Skyward user in the school setting, a Customer Success Trainer and a Customer Success Manager has given me context and understanding for customers’ experiences. That same empathy is abundant in the Customer Success Department, creating a strong bond between not only between Skyward and our customers, but also an unshakable bond between teammates. Skyward is great, and it’s the best move I ever made!
