As a data analyst, Jennifer Tucker Klein designs surveys for Brandman University and calculates the school’s graduation rate, but her expertise in data mining allows her to delve further into statistical analysis. She gleans information from social media apps and services to understand how and why they work, using this skill to examine the factors behind the data, such as how many students stay in school and what motivates them to do so.
“I enjoy helping others with objectives through mining and analyzing data, and communicating improvements through evidence-based, data-driven, strategic planning,” Klein says.
She also owns her own statistical consulting business, and she enjoys running and hiking in her off time.
“The team at Brandman values my work as a purveyor of data-driven evidence, and that is priceless,” she says. “People use my work to guide their goals.” brandman.edu
