I enjoy helping others cut through the noise to get what they need.
While some may find it overwhelming, I'm at my best when I get to straddle between strategy, data analysis, and creative design and coding.
But I started out in a different field: My time in international public policy saw me working under tight deadlines to sort out positions and briefs on issues like shipping's effects on climate change and the marine environment. Later, still in the public service, I moved into strategic planning, where I used research to advise senior management on key trends, among other things.
I discovered data visualizations and storytelling from outlets like Fivethirtyeight and the New York Times, and I loved the hybrid nature of the work.
Eventually, as my interest grew, I made a triple career switch to the private sector, a different industry, and a new role in tech. But I found that my skills in strategic communication continue to serve me well, even as I pick up new ones in data science, design, and web development.
At present, I'm on a learning sabbatical! I'm also an advocate for diversity in tech, supporting Google's Women Developers Academy as a mentor. I previously served as the editor for She Loves Data, a nonprofit, to share stories to uplift and inspire women in tech.
Outside, you'll find me rock climbing, sipping craft beers, and hunting for new absurd comedies.
