I transitioned careers from a paralegal to a data analyst in July of 2023. I have experience with analyzing and cleaning data using SQL, along with creating data visualizations in Tableau and Google Looker. I'm currently a full time data analyst for Golden Hearts Games. I also work part-time as a Digital Content Producer for Luke Barousse's Youtube Channel.

I write twice a month on my blog about data analytics, learning, and the day-to-day life of a data analyst. I volunteer in the education department with the Turtle Bay Exploration Park Outside of my professional life you can find me building LEGOs, weight lifting or spending quality time with my dog, Luna.
