Ms. Merna thinks outside the box when problem solving; she challenges the norms and attempts to innovate with her unique viewpoint.

Through the process of analyzing the data, the story of the data is uncovered and translated to a broad audience (technical and non-technical) from which actionable insights can be achieved. A natural born leader, she loves a challenge and wants to take advantage of every opportunity. Ms. Merna is passionate about education and learning; she is a lifelong student who always wants to expand her knowledge. Ms. Merna is a commanding asset to any business.
