“The most rewarding aspect of my job is utilizing data to help our clients achieve that “ah ha” moment about ways into the difficult global challenges and issues they’re facing.”

“I love that I’m able to work across client teams in my role at Purple. That allows me to partner with people who bring a wide array of backgrounds, perspective and expertise. I also get to immerse myself in different issues and industries. Every day is an education.”

“In my senior year of college, I wanted to get more experience in different types of video production, so I took a sports production class. We spent most of our time producing live sporting events for our university’s TV station (ESPN who?). It was fantastic!”
