My road in life took a while to figure out.
I started college as an engineering major.
Then I realized that the only thing I liked about the engineering curriculum was the math.
So I changed my major to math, and noticed that I also enjoyed the computer science side of math.
I added a second major, Management Information Systems.
Upon graduation, I still didn't know what I wanted to do with my life.
So I enrolled in graduate school for an MBA to get more business-specific education.
After college, I was tired of living in a snowy state, so I decided to look for jobs out west.
I was hired out of college by Deloitte in Las Vegas... and the rest is history.

Day to Day

Every day is different, but the objective of my role remains constant - support our leaders to enable industry strategy. Some days I focus on performing financial analyses to present an analytical view of our business. Other days, I do research to identify trends that drive our clients' needs and our company's opportunities. Still other days, you will find me deep into PowerPoint or Adobe Illustrator, creating presentations or infographics.
