About Alyssa

Following graduation from UConn in 2016, I joined the analytics development program at Liberty Mutual Insurance in Boston. Through rotations on analytics and data science teams, I developed an appreciation for the role data plays in all functions of a business from talent to pricing. Since 2018 I have worked in the product analytics space, leveraging tools such as SAS EG, Python, Tableau and PowerBI to clean, analyze and visualize data in support of portfolio profitability and business development strategy.
