Data Scientist

I recently completed a 9-month full-time Data Science Course from Lambda University. I have over 2500 hours working with statistics, machine learning, NLP, and Neural Networks. Since completing my studies, I have had the honor to stay on at Lambda School as a teaching assistant in the Data Science program. As a Teaching Assistant, I oversee a group of 7 students. I conduct code reviews and run standups. I act as a tutor and hold office hours for students needing additional support.

Educator

I'm from Jackson, MS and attended Milsaps College where I obtained a BA in History Education with a minor in French. During this time, I worked at a reading research program helping students who were chronically behind their grade's reading level. I also worked as an ESL teacher in Bezon France which is a suburb of Paris. Over the last 8 years, I have built Gardner Academy Private School in Windhoek, Namibia. As Founding Director, I developed the curriculum, trained the teachers, led a staff of 32 and grew the school from 3 students to 350.

Entrepreneur

I am fundamentally a creator at heart, I enjoy bringing things into existence that become a daily part of other's lives. I also enjoy supporting other creators as they bring their ideas into existence as well. I started my first business at 22 years old. As an entrepreneur, I've hired, trained, and lead teams of over 40. I have a great capacity to bring groups together around a common vision and goal.
