I translate data into actionable insights and recommendations for growing businesses. In business analytics, no two days are the same, but they are always extremely fast-paced. Working with a few key functional areas means I am given the chance to put on many hats, and it’s always gratifying to dig in with them, spin up, and solve big problems. I really enjoy charging into dynamic team environments, rallying folks around a mission, and meeting revenue-driving challenges head on.
I started my career in consulting, giving me the opportunity to work on many different projects with many companies. Though each challenge was unique, there was a uniting thread in the form of multitudes of untapped data. I gravitated quickly towards sourcing, translating, and presenting this information to aid growth decisions, and have been hooked on data ever since!
