My name is Loraine Yow
I love organizing complex information and building efficient workflow systems.
I'm also a big fan of spreadsheets and Accounting principles.
Bachelor of Science
7 years experience as a Visual Communication Specialist
I am currently starting a post-baccalaureate degree in Accounting at Portland State University.
This is a mid-career pivot for me— a decision I made after unexpectedly falling in love with accounting while taking an online course earlier this year. It suits my Excel-loving, data analyst heart in a way that being an illustrator never did.
I’m still in discovery mode, trying to figure out how I want to specialize in accounting or if I want to switch to an MSF instead. There’s a certificate for Business Analysis that’s part of PSU’s MSF program that is calling my name.
I’m looking to talk to people who can make a strong argument for any one of these options. If you know of anyone who would be good for me to talk to, please let me know!
Some problems I've enjoyed solving and other things of mild interest
