Thankful for Mary

In this five-part series, I wanted to give you a brief introduction to each of the people who make Analytical Ones great: Its employees. I so appreciate their hard work and dedication to all our clients. Quite simply, without them there would be no Analytical Ones.

Mary Hart, Senior Consultant – Director of Data Services

Mary is a rock. There is only one way with Mary – the right way.

Mary has been turning data into insights since 2000. Her diversified experience with all things data is a true asset to Analytical Ones. Her experience includes more than 15-years working with the ins-and-outs of nonprofit data.

At Analytical Ones, Mary is our gatekeeper of good data. Not a byte of data makes it to any of our analysts’ desks or for production scoring unless Mary has reviewed, scrubbed and validated it. We all know the saying, “garbage in/garbage out.” Well, Mary makes sure the garbage data never makes it in.

But what I appreciate most about Mary is her can-do attitude and her conscientiousness to make sure the job is done right, every single time.

Thank you, Mary, for all you do for Analytical Ones, and our clients.
