I learned OR late in life: graduate school! I have a Masters in Public Policy with an emphasis in OR. I currently sell and lead projects for IBM's Business Analytics & Optimization organization, where I've worked for 7 years - primarily in simulation, microsimulation, and econometrics. I feel incredibly grateful to work in this field, & I learn something new almost everyday...whether technical or related to the complex missions / challenges of my federal clients.
I love what I do, and I love sharing it with other devotees - and learning what others are doing. I also appreciate keeping up on the latest innovative approaches and (to a lesser extent, more conversationally) technologies/products.
I am a current WINFORMS member & Board Member. I love that we have a deeply established professional society for those of us working in analytics/OR. Please join us for inspiring monthly speakers & consider getting more involved.
