Strata Decision Technology

BA Philosophy, 2014


I got my BA in PHilosophy from Loyola in 2014. I started working full-time my junior year of college. I am now manage three people at Strata Decision Technology. My company makes financial software for hospitals and health systems. My team is responsible for any software issues or requests that come up after initial implementation of our software. Anything from simple report requests to large scale financial operations (i.e. monthly reporting, annual budgeting, long term forecasting), my team handles. Some days we're chatting about how long a report takes to run with a front-line analyst. Other days we're talking about costs of issuance on $30 million bonds with a SVP of Finance at a multi-billion dollar health system.
