CS LEWIS
If you see through everything, then everything is transparent. But a wholly transparent world is an invisible world. To 'see through' all things is the same as not to see.

Experience

Board Member
Impact Industry Marketing
2020-Present

We help business grow by optimizing their online marketing strategies.


SENIOR BUSINESS ANALYST
Grant Thornton
2019-Present

I oversee the revenue forecast for the Public Sector practice. Using my arsenal of knowledge and tools I have been able to greatly increase the accuracy and efficiency of the revenue forecast.


Additionally I have had the opportunity to work on building automated dashboards for quick access to company metrics and data. These dashboards are used across the firm from Associates to Partners.

I am a part of a team focused on innovation and pushing the firm towards the future! We have implemented PowerApps as one example.


Market leader
Carvana
2016-2019

During my time at Carvana I worked in a variety of roles, most notably as a member of the Growth and Expansion Team and as the Market Leader for the Washington, DC market.

As a member of the Growth and Expansion Team I was able to travel around the US and launch new markets helping the company to blitz scale prior to going public (NYSE: CVNA)! During this season of growth I launched the following markets: Baltimore, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, and Los Vegas. I was also able to assist with Detroit, DC, and Houston.

After my time with the Growth and Expansion Team I was asked to take over and run the DC market. During my time as the Market Leader I was able to build and manage a team of associates constantly working to motivate and push them to reach their highest potential. Oversaw all regional logistics and sales, my team and I were able to grow the market 300% and were consistently the most efficient market in the company, providing the most deliveries with the fewest hours worked than any other location.


FINANCIAL ANALYST
Kobie Marketing
2016

As a Financial Analyst for Kobie Marketing I got my first introduction into automation. It was here that my love for efficiency was born and where I first learned to code in VBA and make API and ODBC connections. I worked with the Director of Finance to built a fully automated financial reporting system, the system we built reduced the effective time for reporting from several hours to two clicks of a button. It's safe to say I automated myself out of a job on this one!
