Kristen is a Jr. Data Analyst who joined Cypress North in May 2023. She works out of our Buffalo office, where she spends her days updating client dashboards, preparing analytic insights, and running queries to pull data from various sources.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Kristen brings more than 10 years of professional experience to our team. While her background is in higher education, Kristen decided on a career shift in 2022 and quit her job to go back to school full-time to study data science. Though she says it was scary and exciting to start over, Kristen is loving the data analytics field and has enjoyed learning new tools and techniques.
Kristen is currently working toward a master’s degree in data science and analytics from Buffalo State University and is on track to graduate in December 2023. She previously earned a Bachelor of Arts in communication studies from Niagara University and a master’s degree in communication and leadership from Canisius University.
Some of Kristen’s previous experience includes instructional roles and working as a marketing communications coordinator. Most recently, she was a marketing professor for five years at Penn State Behrend in Erie.
When she’s not working, Kristen enjoys running and taking her dog Charlie for walks around Buffalo.
