I am now:
Manager of Insights and Analytics at Elite SEM
Since graduating from Alma:
I completed my Master of Public Health degree at Drexel University immediately after graduating from Alma. Once I finished my MPH, I began working in the clinical research department at Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania to improve health outcomes for women and men in Philadelphia. I transitioned from public health to digital analytics several years ago using my statistical background to analyze data to make strategic decisions for pharmaceutical companies. I presently lead a team of analysts at Elite SEM, where I develop and execute analytics strategy across a wide variety of clients covering multiple business verticals. I’m an active member of the Philadelphia Tableau User Group, the Philadelphia Chapter of the Digital Analytics Association, and several groups focused on women in data and analytics.
My Alma education:
Set me up for success in more ways that I ever imagined. The rigor of the academic work coupled with the immersive student community provided me with a multitude of skills I’m still able to appreciate later in life.
My favorite place(s) on campus included:
I have a lot of fond memories around the lunch tables in Van Dusen.
My favorite professor(s) included:
Dr. Hill, Dr. Anderson, Dr. Ball, Dr. Luetkemeier, Dr. Davis
My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is:
So many of them are still SO vivid, it’s hard to pick, but there was a particular evening of ice skating on the Chapel lawn that I’ll always cherish.
How Alma has helped with my current plan/job/graduate school/etc.:
Alma prepared me in so many ways to succeed in both grad school and in my career. Alma helped me build a foundation to think critically, investigate problems holistically, and communicate articulately. These skills carried me through grad school and helped me build a successful career in the corporate world.
How I have given back to Alma since graduation
Since graduation, I’ve signed up for the Ambassador program and attend as many local events as I possibly can.
Advice I would give a new graduate:
Work hard, treat people with respect, make the environment around you a better place, and above all, remember to have fun. You are going to be working for the rest of your life, remember to stop every once in a while to appreciate and enjoy the process.
