What is your role at Upton Hill?

I am a Senior Consultant at Upton Hill. I work as a project manager/business analyst specializing in data analytics and process analysis.

What is your favorite thing about your job?

My favorite part of my position is the opportunity I am given to have a direct impact on the client’s work. In my current project, I can find applications for the improvements we are recommending and documenting in the team’s day-to-day roles as well as the long-term business goals from a management perspective.

Why do you enjoy working in health care?

I work in healthcare because it is an industry where you can make a difference in people’s lives. Often in management consulting you can find yourself working on projects that do not affect the patient or the client in a significant way. It has been my experience that healthcare projects are more likely to have outcomes with concrete improvements designed with the patient or member in mind.

What do you do for fun when you aren’t at work?

I have become very into spin recently and go about 6x a week! I love the music and the feeling of “dancing” on a bike.

If you are stuck on a deserted island, what three TV series do you bring?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars and Breaking Bad!
