I have a very strong academic and employment history and am prepared for a future career in statistics. My scholastic journey began in 1995 when I graduated Union High School with 32 college advanced placement credits through Seton Hall University. This allowed me the freedom to explore different majors at Boston University. Ultimately I graduated with a BA in International Relations concentrating in Business and Economics in 1999.
After Boston University I was hired and placed in an Operations Management Training program in Bear Stearns’ fixed income department. I provided Bear’s top hedge fund clients with portfolio accounting, relationship management, and clearing services. This occurred during the early development of electronic trading and reporting. I proved to be a standout employee in handling project work in this area of finance.
I then was promoted to the Mortgage Backed Securities Regional Dealer Desk as sales assistant. There I became FINRA Series 7 licensed and excelled in the sale of taxable fixed income products to institutional clientele. I grossed over $10mm for the desk and learned to model CMO’s and their derivatives, for sale to banks and hedge funds.
Due to a restructuring of the desk, I left Bear and took a position at a mid-sized law firm as a paralegal. The attorneys I assisted specialized in securities litigation and underwriting, and I learned much about the administrative and legal aspects of corporate finance.
The flexibility of this job afforded me the time to pursue a MS in Finance concentrating in Investment Management from Golden Gate University. There I honed my financial skills with coursework in portfolio analysis and derivative markets. I learned advanced trading techniques and methodologies.
I then invested some personal capital and time in a two trading companies, EchoTrade and Xerxes. There I was Series 7 licensed as a day trader, and strived to profit in a turbulent market. I learned that the methods of technical chart analysis and leveraged short term day trading are not as formidable as the statistical models
I left the day trading market, and pursued statistics at Kean University with the hopes of combining it with my financial background, for a more rounded financial/applied mathematics education. I developed the ground work in areas of applied statistics, regression, linear algebra, and actuarial analysis. Unfortunately the program was closed, and I transferred to NJIT in the fall semester of 2011.
In 2011 with a background in statistics I re-entered the workforce as a contract employee at Bristol Myers Squibb. I presently work under this contract as a Statistical Coordinator. Work consists of using statistical methods and software to analyze Quality Control data and projects for drug products BMS produces and markets globally.
