What’s your work-life philosophy?
I believe Thomas Kinkade said it best:
“Balance, peace, and joy are the fruit of a successful life. It starts with recognizing your talents and finding ways to serve others by using them.”
What does a typical day as a Business Intelligence Analyst look like?
What I love so much about being a BI Analyst is that no day is the same! A typical engagement would be gathering requirements from either a customer or UDT employee, figuring out which technology would best suit their needs, build out the solution, then document it all in a clean and concise manner.
How does your role help to elevate the customer’s experience?
I provide customers with as much transparency into their data as possible. This allows customers to drive their business decisions based on the services UDT provides them.
What technology solutions do you use in your role?
I use a variety of technology solutions depending on the task at hand. These include:
- Microsoft Power Platform (Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate)
- SQL, SSRS, SSIS
- Microsoft Teams
What is the best professional advice you would give?
Never stop learning! Always be curious and never be afraid to ask questions when you do not know answer. Timid-ness and self-doubt are the biggest deterrents that we as individuals must break to become successful. Constantly strive to build confidence and knowledge in every aspect of your professional life, and pass that on to your peers.
