What prompted you to pursue your current career within the tech industry?

Curiosity got me here. In college, I was very fascinated by data. I wanted to know how and why [business] decisions were made. After my first data analytics internship, I realized that data was the answer, and I was hooked. That’s how I ended up in my current role as a data analyst.

What do you enjoy most about your current role?

I get to work with data every day to help the business make decisions. I work with a passionate team that lives, eats and breathes data. We love what we do and enjoy working together. We use SQL and Python to extract and manage data, then visualize it using Tableau for the end user. Basically, I get to do what I enjoy most with one of the best data teams in Chicago.
