Tell us about your experience with Datasource Consulting (DSC), including types of projects and positions held: 

So far at DSC, I've consulted for a marketing group to enhance a Data Warehouse and build marketing reports and analytics, assessed a credit union for Data Governance implementation, performed a Product Architecture assessment at a healthcare product company, and performed a Lift and Shift assessment for a financial institution on their Data Ingestion Engine. 

Describe life at Datasource with three unique words.

Exhilarating, cultivating, flourishing

Tell us what you like most about working at DSC.

I enjoy the large variation of projects I have been engaged on in the last year. I am continuously learning and love to learn.

What challenges you the most and what motivates you the most at DSC?

I am most motivated by a happy customer. The challenges are to overcome obstacles to create that happy customer.

What are your hobbies outside of work? 

I love golf, playing volleyball, and gardening

What is on your bucket list?

I would love to travel to Germany for Octoberfest.

What is your hidden talent?

We have a large garden and I can and pickle the excess produce. We have a great canned salsa recipe.

Do you have any phobias?

I am scared to death of heights and my three sons are avid rock climbers. It doesn’t make any sense.

Tell us why you fell in love with data.

I feel a great sense of satisfaction when I am able to show a customer insights I was able to glean about their company from their data. It is very gratifying when the light bulb goes off in a customer’s head and they become excited about the intelligence hidden in their data.
