I began working in tech 20 years ago. I worked first as a data analyst, looking at data from Oracle and SQL databases and reporting services, with the intention of helping users better use advanced functions from tools like Excel. After that came Power BI, and I evolved by working through different stages of analytics while also continuing with my studies and certifications. While doing all this, I started working as a consultant for the first time which allowed me to learn about different industries and begin to understand and solve for the business needs that executives are prioritizing. This is very important to learn, and for me personally as a consultant, it’s helped me gain knowledge on what leaders want and how they prefer solutions to be shared with them.
Around 7 years ago, I started working with advanced analytics and completed a postgraduate course on machine learning and artificial intelligence at Johns Hopkins. In 2021 I received my Masters Degree in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence from the European University of Madrid. Throughout all of these years, I’ve been constantly learning. I like this about the field, as I get to consistently find and work with thousands of tools that are literally changing day by day. And most importantly, throughout all of this learning, I’ve seen our data science work become more efficient through the evolving of services and tools from cloud providers like GCP, Azure and AWS. Continuous learning and certifications hold immense significance for me. They've empowered me to create and envision thousands of solutions for my clients.
