She recognizes the critical and strategic role data plays in decision-making for our clients and she’s made every effort to become a sought-after expert in the field. On top of that, she’s a joy to work with – she brings an intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm to every situation.”

“I’m extremely grateful for this recognition. Helping our clients understand and navigate the evolving landscape of data and analytics is thrilling and challenging, and I’m constantly thankful for the opportunities to work with so many diverse and notable clients,” said Seeds.
