There are three things I love about my job. One, that I get to be the first one to pore over data, identifying and monitoring trends and see which way the tides are turning. Two, that I get to work alongside the best and the brightest in the business. There is no better team of dedicated researchers than the Meeting Street team. And three, that I get to work with clients who are accomplishing amazing things and reaching their goals. Being a part of their successes gives me an added purpose.
