My Work Experience

Where I've interned and worked during my career.

Charles Schwab | Mar 2023 - Jun 2023

Cybersecurity Analyst

• Alteryx Optimization: Applied industry-standard best practices, employed advanced In-Database tools, and performance-tuned queries using SQL diagnostics, resulting in workflow runtimes that previously took 8+ hours to complete being reduced to under 45 minutes which met server resource constraints. • Compliance app: Developed an Alteryx meta-application that assessed compliance with design standards. This app also suggested opportunities for improvements which increased efficiency and workflow maintainability for all users. • Cybersecurity Dashboard: Within two weeks, built a Tableau dashboard urgently requested by the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). This dashboard visualized cybersecurity assessment coverage and identified gaps in compliance. It facilitated preparation for an external audit, ensuring the firm's adherence to security standards. • Secure Workflows: Orchestrated Alteryx workflows, SQL stored procedures and Tableau extracts, meeting desired frequency requirements while ensuring confidentiality, data integrity, and availability.
