Kirsten Hoogenakker

As an Analytics Consultant at DataDrive, I gravitate towards using data to solve business problems with a hyper-focus on user experience and human-centered design. My superpowers are active listening to ensure I’m meeting client needs, and harnessing data science and machine learning to predict outcomes. I seek out challenging projects that create a lasting impact for my clients and measurably improve their day-to-day. I am always looking for the next adventure! I spend a lot of my time outside of work racing my bike (in criteriums, on the velodrome, on gravel, in cyclocross, and enjoy single track for fun). I can regularly be found reading books in a hammock, listening to bird calls, and feeling the breeze on my cheeks in any of our local parks or while camping.
