My life goal is to help increase the resilience of individuals, communities, and organizations in the face of a rapidly changing world. My combined experience in education in urban planning and finance allows me to advance my life mission in a significant way.
Everyone has a unique flavor they add to the pot. I love diving into the details and better understanding any subject in which I am conducting research. Thanks to my planning background, I know the elements of a good plan, and enjoy developing them. Thanks to my finance background, I am able to quickly assess the environment around me and have a very good sense of timing. At the same time, I love connecting personally with others and I understand deeply the importance of building and maintaining relationships.
R Programming, ArcGIS Urban, SPSS, Tableau, and of course all of the Microsoft and Adobe products.
