I have always been looking for ways to combine my love of mathematics and psychology. This has led me to a career path in analytics, specifically in marketing and consumer behavior. Starting out as an intern at QVC on their customer and marketing analytics team, I found a passion in painting a picture of who their customers were with data. As a strategic data analyst, I continue to build on my analytics toolkit. Not only do I consider how we can leverage data to answer questions, but I also am continually thinking about the questions we have not even asked yet.
Digging into a client’s direct mail data, I noticed that there were guests receiving mail that looked similar to a population that would be disadvantageous to mail to. I developed an algorithm to flag those with this “camouflaged identity”, to earn the client a projected savings of $120,000 annually.
There is a high standard that is held at SIGMA. I am surrounded by so many intelligent and hard-working teammates and this motivates me to work my hardest, learn more, and always consider what is best for our client first.
