My career has navigated through various marketing forms – from graphic design to web development through collecting data and analyzing content. I’ve dedicated my career to deliver visible, democratized statistics to make data-driven decisions, and ultimately, authentic business growth.

My enthusiasm to serve all individuals with a company equally committed was the basis of my choice to join the team. I believe data and insights have powerful stories to tell, and we need to hear them in real-time to achieve business transformation. Over the years, I’ve experienced the art of marketing, and I am excited to continue creating prideful art in my new role as Marketing Data Analyst.”
