Let’s talk about Finance!
Finance is a broad discipline related to money management, often involving advice and recommendations on investments, loans, and credit. Finance professionals handle millions of dollars each day and rely on their skills in numbers, interpreting trends, and even devising new methods to benefit their organizations.
In my professional life, I’ve gone from being an Operations Coordinator at a worldwide Manufacturing and Logistics company to a Financial Analyst at a FAANG company. Outside of work, you can find me at Barry’s doing a full-body workout or hanging out with the friends I have met while living in the Pacific Northwest. I love trying new foods and pushing life to uncomfortable limits (with limits of course).
