Sr. Full Stack Developer @ Level20 | Progressive Insurance @ Aurora, Ohio
Marketing Analyst at Tableau Software
I'm a data enthusiast based in Seattle, WA. With a degree in Politics, Chinese, and Environmental Science, I never anticipated getting wrapped up in the tech world - but I absolutely love it. Tableau introduced me to the power of visual data analytics. At work, I combine my love for art with my desire to seek efficiency and make the world a better place.
While my weekdays are occupied with charts and graphs, the rest of my days are devoted to fighting climate change, reading, dancing, and playing wholesome video games. I always seek to be a new student of something so I may forever invoke "the beginner's mind". Music, art, dance, language, culture, politics, and history endlessly captivate me. I love to learn about what others are passionate about so I can help them achieve their dreams.
If you are a high school or college student wondering about what to study, my two cents is to study what you love. You don't necessarily need a degree in business to make it in the business world. Study something that captivates you, challenges you, delights you, and annoys you. And while you're in school, practice being an activist (if you aren't already). The activism doesn't stop when you leave college - the stakes only get higher. Your voice may become the key to unlocking a better, safer, and more innovative environment at your future workplace.
