I am Data Engineer, Analytics at GitLab, helping build the data infrastructure, modeling, and analyses that supports a billion-dollar company. My role forces me to think deeply about how we work as we build our small team to scale. I have come to really appreciate the value in documentation, scaling knowledge, and
really_really_obvious_naming_conventions. I care deeply about the work I'm doing. At its core, I think of my work as helping people use data to answer their questions. I used to think of my work as being the train conductor that gets people from question to answer, but today I think of the work I do as laying down the train tracks, empowering people to drive their own trains.
I'm an Army Wife, currently living in Savannah, GA, my sixth home in four years. Despite being forced to never plant roots too deeply, I'm grateful to be part of multiple amazing personal, professional, religious, and interest-driven communities online and in-person that make the transitions a little easier.
