So what do you DO at Alight? 

I’m on the BIDS team — building Power BI and Tableau template dashboards that help our clients get started on reporting quickly.

What did you do before you came to Alight?  

I worked at Cerner in data analytics. 

What do you like to do when you aren’t at work? 

I love checking out new places in KC with family and friends, specifically food and drink spots. In the summer, I love spending time at the lake, boating and floating. I also enjoy playing board games — not Monopoly, fun games! If you ever need a new game, come ask! 

People are always surprised to learn that you … 

Played soccer growing up and in college. I’m really competitive when it comes to sports.

What’s your must-have snack?

Candy, literally any kind of candy. I will always have some type of candy at my desk 🙂

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

I’m a ‘90s girl, so my go-to karaoke will be any Backstreet Boys song. Out of tune, of course. 

Are you a listener or a talker? 

Talker. I’m the youngest of four kids, so I learned quickly how to be loud.

The zombie apocalypse is in 10 minutes. Who are the 3 people you want on your team? 
  • Buffy Summers — Vampire Slayer
  • Geralt of Rivia — Witcher
  • Chuck Norris — even zombies run from Chuck Norris
