“I previously worked with Ms. Varnado at Stanbridge University in the Masters of Occupational Therapy thesis/research program. She was instrumental in the reliability, validity, and overall success of graduate student research despite difficulties … in the newly established department. Ms. Varnado is prompt, communicative, approachable, and ethical. I would highly recommend her and would love the opportunity to work with her again.”

Clearly communicating statistical literacy, analysis findings and insights from data is critical at a time when what is fact or opinion begins to be a matter of debate. The power of a data driven approach is evident when making decisions from urban streets design to healthcare studies and even advertising!
It’s been fun helping grad students design and analyze their evidence based research, develop survey instruments, determine correct statistical tests and visualization possibilities for verifiable results. I’ve also analyzed datasets to make policy and logistical recommendations, facilitate nonprofit grant applications, product development and budget insights. I enjoy working with small groups and individually to work out solutions.
While I’m working on my degree in Statistics, I’m interested in project and part time opportunities that will let me work on real world problems. Ideally using SPSS and Tableau.
Note: Documents were prepared for grad student research groups. But they may be helpful for anyone looking for an introduction to data types, research design or the best way (that I prefer!) to submit data for statistical analysis.
