Growth Analytics Manager at Zego

London, England

I've been lucky. Every job I've had since completing my undergrad at UT Austin has been in an industry I hadn't really thought about prior to entering. Moving internationally at the beginning of a pandemic wasn't exactly the plan I had in store for myself, but here I am. Yet, somehow, I find myself in the UK doing incredibly rewarding work, building and launching an analytics platform from scratch, as a Data Product Manager.

This wasn't really wasn't I dreamed of doing. I went back to school at Vanderbilt to get my MBA because I wanted to work in sports analytics ("Moneyball" was my muse) and thought I needed a bit more academic background to compete in such a competitive industry. I loved working in real estate, and I had amazing coworkers. However, I knew my time doing valuation work had run its course. Of course, after getting my MBA, I didn't end up with my dream job working for the Texas Rangers (my favorite baseball team!). I ended up in healthcare, in a management rotational program, each time in a role I had no prior experience doing. But that's what I loved about it. I got to work in an industry where I actually help people, am constantly challenged learning new things, work with great people, and I get to see where there are areas for improvement in it too. I can't really ask for much more.

Outside of work, I'm obsessed with pop culture, podcasts (I will listen to anything about behavioral economics or public policy), travelling, and sports. I'm always looking for a new challenge, so feel free to connect about anything.
