Julie Shallman



In between baking and playing volley­ball, Julie likes to solve complex math prob­lems for fun! Julie started at Search Discovery just under a year ago, as part of our college hire program, and has had a signif­i­cant posi­tive impact on her peers and our clients. She holds a Masters in Math, which explains her passion for helping her colleagues navi­gate tough data situ­a­tions, and she thrives on helping our clients over­come their chal­lenges. Her day-to-day is never a bore, as she bounces from opti­miza­tion to data analy­sis to reading arti­cles and taking courses to enhance her skill set.

In my first 9 months here I have expe­ri­enced diving head first into an indus­try I had no prior knowl­edge of. Every­one here has empow­ered me to take on new tasks, chal­lenge myself, and gain expe­ri­ence in analyt­ics and opti­miza­tion. I cannot believe how much I have learned already and it makes me so excited for what is next!
