Hire Me Because

The analysis of key metrics for improvement has always been a fascination of mine. This paired with my love of storytelling has allowed me to seamlessly transition into using data science methodologies to tell an impactful story.

My Capstone Project: Is America’s Glass Half-Empty? Discovering drivers of America’s prospective thinking.

Acquiring survey data from the Pew Research- American Trends Panel, our team explored the drivers of pessimism in American Prospective Attitudes. Understanding what most likely drives pessimistic thinking about the future will help business leaders clarify strategies for moving forward and guide expectations of future success in the customers they serve, products offered, investments made, in Marketing and Sales, and throughout their business organization. By creating a Random Forest model, we found top drivers of prospective pessimistic thinking include concerns about the future of the US economy, quality of life for families and children, and public education. We recommend that business leaders acknowledge these concerns, and create and/or affirm policies and practices that support stability, security and educational growth.
