    How long have you worked at IO? I joined IO in 2016 as a database analyst. I have been fortunate to grow my career at IO since, first as a Senior Database Analyst, then moving to my current role as Manager of Data Architecture. I am someone that likes to be challenged and I appreciate the organization’s efforts to help employees grow in their careers. I have benefited first-hand from the many training opportunities offered that helped me get to the role I am in today.

    What does your job entail? I currently manage a team of individuals with diverse professional backgrounds, including data analysis, business process, data integration, and business intelligence solution development. I often serve as the first point-of-contact on data issues and the implementation of new data solutions. I provide guidance on workload, technical advice to the team, and report on progress to senior management. 

    What do you like most about your job? My job is full of new challenges, daily. I explore multiple functional data sets and gather data to address business needs. I find it very meaningful to contribute facts-based decision making that impacts residents of Ontario.

    What is your career background? Before joining IO, I worked across multiple industries in the private sector with a focus on data warehousing and business intelligence solutions.
