Senior Analyst, Boston

What do you work on at Analysis Group?
I’ve always been interested in the complexity of the health care system, so I quickly found my way into projects that helped me attain a better understanding of various health economics and litigation topics. That said, I still have opportunities to work on broad array of projects, ranging from finance, consumer products, and employee compensation to the rent-sharing economy and Internet privacy regulation.
What new skills have you learned since joining AG?
I’ve enriched my portfolio of programming languages, but what I appreciate most is the reinforcement of the analytical thinking that lies behind them. At AG, I’ve learned not only to execute an analysis, but also to think critically about any chart or table that I make, assess whether the results make sense, identify ways to bring the analysis to the next level, and extract insights that resonate most with our clients.
What new experiences have you had at AG?
Joining AG right after college, I’ve found myself constantly working in a team setting – bouncing ideas off my teammates and checking in to see where things are and how I can be helpful. All of these team-oriented activities differentiate my life at AG from my life back in college, where I had the opportunity to work on small-group projects but not on a daily basis.
What do you think about AG’s collaborative culture?
Being among the more junior people in the firm, I was happy to find my voice heard and my opinion valued by my more senior colleagues. For example, when a few analysts and I realized that AG didn’t have an LGBTQ inclusion group, we developed an initiative to form such a group and received tremendous support across all levels of the firm.
What do you do when you’re not working?
I enjoy yoga, painting, dancing, trying out new restaurants and bars, and hiking in New Hampshire. Boston has a lot to offer, which makes it easy for me to keep up with my hobbies. Interestingly, many of my peers from AG share the same hobbies (and some of them even convinced me to start new ones), so I frequently have company doing fun things outside of work.
