About

After a 14-year career of designing annual reports, maps, neighborhood guides, website features and research reports I decided to leave my job to study data analysis. I have always been interested in the power of math to help us understand the world and I needed to make a commitment to turn my career in this direction. In July 2021 I completed the IBM Data Analyst Certification and I am now working to find my next great challenge.
