Born in Jersey, grew up in Texarkana, TX. I’ve lived in San Diego, Boston, the Berkshires, and Brooklyn. I live outside of Boulder now with my husband, Scott, and my dog, Darcy Buttersworth Wilson. We are a happy family.
For reasons I can’t explain, I like to organize and make sense of things. It doesn’t always work out; the world isn’t black and white. For the most part, though, this need to make sense of things pays off.
With that, here are some things I love:
- yoga (Ashtanga, Kripalu, Bikram, Baron Baptiste…you name it, I’ve practiced it)
- cooking (my husband and I love cooking together; see recipes here)
- coffee (Gimme Coffee, Press Coffee)
- the outdoors / stars / wind / nature’s beauty
- Scottie, my husband
- BI and analytics
- plain white t-shirts
- community and laughing with good friends
- good, flavorful food
- the movies
I’ve taken my enjoyment of making sense of the world by bucketing, categorizing, summarizing, and organizing into my work. I started out in digital marketing (consulting and in-house) and moved to data analysis and BI work when I relocated to New York City. I worked for J. Crew’s nascent Customer Insights team where we built their practice of analyzing their data from a customer and cross-channel (marketing and retail/online) perspective. I fell in love with SQL at J. Crew. I worked for Food52.com, a young company with badass style and refreshing content, where I built their data practice from the ground up. I now work at Automattic.
Oh, and here is Darcy Buttersworth Wilson. You’re welcome.
