Who inspired you to pursue your career in financial management?

My sister has always been my role model and source for much of my inspiration. Seeing her passions for financial advising and accounting sparked my interest into learning more about the financial services industry and eventually deciding where to take the next steps in my career.

Was there a specific incident in your life that made it clear you were made for this career?

The combination of discovering my passion for data visualization and my personal interest/knowledge in the financial services industry made for a perfect fit on where I wanted to take my career.

Why is your work important, especially today?

The importance of data, and how firms utilize it, cannot be understated, especially in the financial services industry. Countless hours are put into securely sourcing and storing Cerity Partners data, so my specialty of creating value through insights and visualizations from that data is crucial to making the most of those efforts and resulting decision-making.
