Joined SIGMA: January 2020

I was previously a Process Quality Engineer at Moog Inc as well as an Operations Research Analyst in Revenue Management at Royal Caribbean Cruises. At Royal Caribbean Cruises, I created procedures/reporting for analysts in order to better manage sailing prices, improved forecasting curves for specific programs within the company. I also worked on retention analysis, process improvement, and reporting.

An accomplishment that I am proud of is that I finished my Master’s degree while working full time.

I love being able to take data and transform it into something meaningful for our clients – this helps them learn even more about their business, and allows them to leverage the data/information they already have to make new and better business decisions.
