Spoke on a panel
I spoke on a panel of data leaders about our experiences operationalizing data strategy.  I answered audience questions about defining and setting audacious goals and using analysis to ruthlessly prioritize your product development roadmap. My favorite question was about blockchain, which no one else on the panel could answer but since I wrote my MBA capstone on it, I could!

Updated a Product Feature
Wrote an exploratory data analysis (EDA)
I identified a niche product feature and analyzed the usage of all key functionalities by cohort to discover it was only being used by 12% of its potential audience. I then deprioritized all engineering work focused on enhancing that feature, which saved $45k in unnecessary development costs over two months.

Completed Capstone Project
Earned an MBA

My focus was on opportunities for marketing and data access and validation, specific to an international QSR pizza chain, widely known for being a technology early adapter.
