I have always loved a challenge; and perhaps even more than a challenge—I have always loved to challenge the status quo. Joining the Marine Corps offered me both of those opportunities—to challenge myself, a non-athlete and non-conformist to become a disciplined athlete and trained warrior. Additionally, it allowed me to challenge the status quo by being in a role that was stereotypically thought of as a "man's job." My career in analytics—a field largely dominated by men—has been a similar experience and continues to allow me to both be challenged and to challenge my peers in a healthy way.
