I am a Data Analyst proficient in Python, Excel, and data visualization. I am an evidence oriented person who aims to address company and customer needs through the scientific interrogation of data. In combination with 8 years of experience in technical support and customer service, I am pursuing a graduate degree in Public and Nonprofit Administration to build on my skills as a leader and critical thinker.
Since leaving my undergraduate education, expanding my knowledge base has held a central position in my life. Either when volunteering with AmeriCorps, or learning on the job as a technical support specialist, understanding how I learn and what needs to be known to solve the problem at hand has been essential to my success. In 2018 I chose to return to school in an effort to improve my skills and to position myself to act as a leader for the organizations I serve. In addition to my graduate degree, I undertook an intensive data analytics bootcamp. Juggling these responsibilities were at times challenging but together have positioned me to be more effective in my pursuits going forward.
