My job is to compile the bits of data, collected through research and outreach, into something that makes sense and is useable. As the designated ‘data wrangler’ I spend my time wrestling structured and unstructured data into submission. Data that is pristine and well prepped is the foundation for many of our initiatives.
Prior to joining Supply Chain Insights, I worked with Healthy Directions, a Helen of Troy company, overseeing CRM, order, promotion, and offer technology and execution. Part of my domain was the data warehouse we used for reporting and analysis. I enjoy leveraging both data and applications to tackle tough business problems. With several enterprise-wide technology implementations behind me, I bring a myriad of lessons learned to my role here.
And now, a few pearls of wisdom:
- It’s not an emergency unless something is on fire or an elephant is sitting on you
- It’s OK to make a mess as long as you clean it up
- You can never say, “Just so we’re clear…” too many times
