Splish Splash is a bathing suit & tourist shop based where I grew up in Sarasota, Florida. I started my first job there at the age of 15, and worked there through the summer after I graduated high school. During my three years, I moved up from floor staff (re-stocking shelves & attending the fitting room), to working the cash register, to being able to close up the shop at night or open it up in the morning on my own. It wasn't always fun, but it was a great first job experience.
Senior Technology Consultant
My job is to help companies solve their toughest business challenges. I specialise in the field of data analysis and visualisation, but I have broad experience in customer experience, design and facilitation, impact evaluation, and social impact.
I have a background in engineering that has allowed me to develop strong analytical skills and a passion for problem solving and learning new things. I still don't know "what I want to be when I grow up", but every day that I try something new, I feel I get closer to figuring it out.

There is a lot of emphasis around "finding your passion" and trying to shape your career and work around "things you love". What most people don't tell you is that you may not know what you love until you try many things, and you may not love something at first that you grow to learn more about and eventually do realise you love. Be open to new opportunities, challenge yourself, and have confidence that by asking the right questions you will be able to solve any challenge.
