“In September I thought I had found the dream job until it wasn’t. Like so many of my colleagues, I was laid off yesterday. I recently posted about my true tribe and how important they are to me and my success. Well, I had the good fortune in the last 90 days, to add many awesome new people to my true tribe! People I would never have met without this experience. You new true tribe members are my lemonade.”

Nextiva hired Gadda to build and oversee the cloud communications and digital workspace provider’s partner onboarding and development group. She left TPx, where she was director of national channel sales and development. After a 20-year stint with TelePacific/TPx, Gadda said she weighed her next move very carefully.
