Hi, I'm Loraine
I'm a data-obsessed spreadsheet enthusiast and accounting nerd.
I love organizing complex information into clean and functional systems.
(This explains why I love accounting principles!)
Previously my career, this superpower has been used to design informative illustrations and data-driven stories.
I am currently working on a major pivot to the field of business analysis, with a focus on data and finance.
Discovered Airtable and fell deeply in love
Discovered YNAB fell deeply in love
with zero-based budgeting.
Graduated from Northern Arizona University
Bachelor of Science in Political Science
Minor in Economics.
Began freelancing as a tech & health illustrator.
Quickly earned a Top-Rated ranking on Upwork.
Began Microsoft's Power BI course
More tingly feelings. Started to consider becoming a data analyst.
Took an online course on accounting principles.
Had a profound moment of enlightenment when I started to see how financial statements feed into one another.
Completed Intuit Academy's Bookkeeping course & exam.
Several more heart flutters were had when learning about how the matching principle works.
Officially decided to pivot to a finance-focused data career.
In retrospect, the signs all pointed here.
Being successful and technically proficient as an illustrator delayed the realization that I did not enjoy the work itself.
It took the act of actually falling in love with something to realize this.
