Andrea studied statistics and sociology at Northwestern, but didn’t delve into finance until she completed an MBA in the subject. After collecting all her degrees, she knew her ideal team would be a startup—preferably in FinTech—since she liked working with complicated models while also helping people understand them. Luckily, she found ZestFinance and made both dreams come true.
Andrea’s daily routine starts with an overview of loan volumes to check approval and response rates. Because her main responsibility is overseeing all application models from beginning to end, Andrea also compares data to financial objectives, like credit score ranges. Though projects differ with each client, Andrea spends most of her time testing things—unless a team Salsa night is planned.
