I am currently a Senior Program Manager at Northwestern Mutual based in New York City. Previously, I was a Technology Consultant playing a leading role in the technical design and implementation of data architecture projects for clients in the financial services sector. I’ve contributed as a Data Analytics Manager at a boutique healthcare consulting firm working with hospitals to create models that forecast expected insurance payer reimbursement. Before that, I was the Director of Operations at Enplug, a tech startup featured in Inc. magazine’s 30 under 30. In that position, I led monthly business and operational model adjustments, developed our hardware supply chain management, technical support, and created business intelligence reporting.

I am working towards a MS in Analytics through Georgia Institute of Technology. The curriculum offered explore the selection, construction, scrutiny, and solution of analytical models with statistics, regression, forecasting, data mining, machine learning, optimization, and simulation. I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Arizona State University. During my Junior year, I studied structural mechanics and control systems at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

My hobbies include hot yoga, basketball, anything sci-fi, behavioral psychology books, mining music in Spotify, spinning vinyl, and watching water.

I was born in Los Angeles, CA and raised in the beautiful Phoenix, AZ sonoran desert. Travels abroad have taken me on backpacking trips through Southeast Asia, Central America, and western Europe. I hope to visit Japan or Patagonia next.
