I am currently a Data Engineer at American Family Insurance and a graduate of Baruch College with a master’s degree in Information Systems/Data Analytics. I seek to help organizations effectively and efficiently leverage big data solutions to make informed decisions, reduce uncertainty, and drive value for clients and stakeholders.

In my previous role as a Data Science Intern at Pitney Bowes, I created detailed analyses and predictive machine learning models, and I communicated key insights with business stakeholders and C-level executives. Before my internship at Pitney Bowes, I worked at DojoMojo as part of the Customer Success team, leading a team of three partnership marketing specialists to help our clients grow their businesses through brand-aware and data-driven partnerships. Prior to my time at DojoMojo, I taught high school English in Wisconsin.
