National Life Group

I am a financial and operational analyst for a life insurance company driven by doing good.


I have a wide range of skills from teaching others to develop self service analytics skills to more advanced predictive workflows, macros and automation. I love statistics and economics and I have a passion for finding hidden insights/ relationships in data that can inform decision making.

I have attended conferences for Alteryx and Tableau and have completed advanced trainings for both platforms. At National Life we have a combined Alteryx and Tableau user group that I present at frequently. I also host walk in office hours for employees and love helping others solve their data problems. Outside of work I use Alteryx to analyze personal finance data and fitness data that I collect from my workouts. I have a masters in business administration and graduate degree in supply chain management from Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont.

In my free time I enjoy snowboarding, rock climbing and playing with my golden retriever. While I am located in Vermont I also travel somewhat frequently for work and would be happy to connect in person as well as remotely.
