New Year, New Hires: Meet the Newest Members on the Predictive Team

At Predictive Data Lab, our small but diverse team of experts combines media gurus, data scientists, educators, graphic designers, marketers, but more importantly a reliable group devoted to helping organizations achieve their goals based on a deep understanding of data analysis techniques.

With a mix of backgrounds and strategic partnerships from an in-house team of analysts to media and trading desk agencies, we’ve developed our expertise to help our clients with the most pressing needs when it comes to data analysis and predictive modeling, and as we continue to grow, so does our team. 

By the end of last year, in December 2021, we had two talented young professionals joining our predictive crew and we are excited to share a little bit more about who they are.

Khari Gardner

Q&A with Khari

What made you choose data science as a career path?

I love Data Science and Analytics. It’s so interesting to see just how much information is out there, and the ability to analyze so many different moving parts is intriguing and challenging.

What motivates you?

The opportunity to grow is what motivates me every day. Being able to push myself and extend my knowledge is one of the most rewarding things for me. I guess you can say I’m a nerd at heart!

What would be your ideal vacation?

I think my ideal vacation would probably be Aspen, CO. I am a terrible skier, but just the views, the surroundings, the idea of being on a beautiful winter mountain resort sounds awesome.

What is your favorite quote or life mantra?

My favorite quote is one my grandfather would always repeat to me my whole life, “Plan your work. Work your plan”.

 

Sentyaset is a marketing specialist skilled in social media, graphic design, human resources, photography, sales, communication, customer service, and Spanish. 

She’s a strong marketing and creative professional currently pursuing a marketing-focused degree in Strategic Marketing from Western Kentucky University.

Q&A with Sentyaset

What made you choose a Marketing career path?

I was looking for something dynamic. I want to be excited about the work, I do and wanted something that would always be changing and keep me challenged.

Sentyaset Rodriguez

Marketing Intern

Who is Sentyaset as a professional and as a colleague?

As a professional, I am the type of person who is always trying to come up with new ideas. I enjoy working on improvements and new creative ideas. As a colleague, I love learning about the fun things my co-workers are doing, and I really enjoy planning fun office engagements.

How do you like to spend your free time?

I love to watch movies, go shopping or go for drives with my boyfriend. I’m usually working on some project whether it be decorating a cake
with my mom or figuring out a better way to organize my sink cabinet, I am always moving.

What’s your favorite movie?

The Princess Bride. I love Rom-Coms and this one has been my favorite since I was little.

What are some of your new year’s resolutions for 2022?

I would like to grow my personal Pinterest page. It’s my favorite social media and I have always dreamed of creating content that people love and want to re-pin. I may even start a blog to feed into it.
