Vice President, Underwrting Data Manager, Team Leader at USLIG
Joan lives in Wayne.
In our increasingly technological society, we collect large amounts of data about everyone and everything. The grocery store records which canned goods I buy. The pharmacist knows which medications I take. The elementary school has records of my volunteer schedule. Every time I make a purchase, fill out a form, or sign up for a new money-saving membership club, countless pieces of data are compiled about me. However, those individual pieces of data on their own are virtually meaningless. It is how we tell a story with data that allows us to make better business decisions, improve our marketing, and visualize our goals. That's where I come in. I am an insurance professional with over ten years of data management experience. I combine skills in T-SQL and SSMS with the business knowledge I have garnered during my time in the insurance industry to tell a story using the data. In this context, data becomes information and empowerment. People sometimes ask me how my background in English and education relates to my current position. Actually, data management is quite similar. Both fields are about teaching, learning, and telling a story. Data analysis merely changes the way in which the story is told.
