Culture Amp: What can you do as a CAmper that you haven’t been able to do elsewhere?
Fresia Jackson: A lot! I'm from the government world so even being able to open up the cabinet and eat company snacks is new for me. The most important thing is that Culture Amp trusts me to choose my own projects, do my own research and help shape the experience of our customers and ultimately, the platform itself.

CA: What does culture first mean to you?
FJ: From a leadership standpoint, Culture First is about considering the effect a decision will have on your employees before thinking about the bottom line.
