I'm an experienced statistician, specializing in predictive analytics for customer loyalty and engagement, which I do for community banks and credit unions through my company, Stakana Analytics. Before working exclusively for financial institutions, I did predictive analytics for ten years in the retail industry for companies such as Nordstrom, T-Mobile, Ste Michelle Wine Estates, Intel, and Wunderman. I've published over 20 technical papers, given multiple presentations, and published two popular open-source analytics software packages. I'm also involved in the leadership of the Insurance & Finance SAS Users Group and the Western Users of SAS Software, two nonprofit educational organization serving analytics professionals in the financial industry.
