Meet Andrea, Strategic Account Executive

Hi, I’m Andrea! After graduating law school and realizing the firm life was not the life for me, I was excited to find an opportunity working in the growing world of LegalTech with Smokeball. I was happy to find that this company not only cared about revolutionizing the legal technology space but was also passionate about their employees and finding a perfect place for them. I started on the Onboarding Team helping my fellow attorneys implement software to improve their day-to-day. I quickly realized I could connect with them because I had been in their shoes before, and I could explain why Smokeball was indispensable to their firm. From there, the move to the Sales Team was exciting and seamless. With my guidance and expertise, I can explain the product and ease any firm’s concerns on adaptation and embracing change. After all, change isn’t hard when you have the best legal product on the market and a team of Smokeballers to help you!
