Analyst, Revenue Management @ From March 2015 to Present (10 months) Greater New York City AreaBusiness Intelligence Analyst, Strategic Planning & Reporting @ As the lead info management analyst, I oversaw reporting and ad hoc analysis. I collaborated with various department heads on the data front- and back-end. I owned and distributed weekly/monthly/quarterly reports to senior executives. I queried data to forecast cancels, identify KPIs, and track usage patterns. I built reports modeling attrition, analyzed the impact of promotions on conversion, and prepared trend reports for board meetings. As a member of the Cancels Committee, I provided actionable data with the goal of minimizing attrition. I supervised two new hires, designed training plans, and managed projects. By utilizing SQL, Excel, and IBM Business Intelligence tools (Cognos, SPSS), I provided insight on how members engage with our services.

- Business Analyst Oct'14-Feb'15 From January 2014 to February 2015 (1 year 2 months) Greater New York City AreaBike Mechanic + Educator @ After I left the city for college, I began exploring Connecticut by bike. As my mileage increased, I bought a used road bike, taught myself bike mechanics, and fell in love with the process. Bike mechanics challenged me to think in new ways and I've since expanded my knowledge by reviving the Wesleyan Bike Coop and working at two shops in Brooklyn. I enjoy sharing my skills, planning workshops, and leading rides with local non-profits. Few things are more meditative than working on a wheel build.

As a native New Yorker, I am fascinated by urban planning and land use issues. StreetsPAC advocates for smarter, safer, healthier cities by electing public officials who advocate for livable streets.

This holistic approach expands access to quality health care for uninsured and under-insured patients. I conducted research on a pilot program that integrates chiropractic and primary care to treat chronic pain. I designed survey metrics and tested for validity to evaluate treatment efficacy. I used my background in quantitative analysis to train student researchers in SPSS and STATA. From September 2012 to May 2013 (9 months) Freelance Consultant @ As one of the first social media consulting firms in New York City, SnapDragon provided me with a strong foundation in user insight analysis.
