Rose Finizio

BA in Mathematics '17,

Rose Finizio works for CMI Media, a pharmaceutical advertising agency located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the analytics department. Much of her day-to-day is spent analyzing raw data and putting together reports and visuals for clients' brands for whom we are working.

Finizio utilizes her degree in computing calculations, seeing patterns and/or discrepancies in numbers. She then uses her problem-solving skills when there are errors or missing data. Many of the programs she uses to create the visuals include various if-then parameters which she says is a quick shout out to discrete math. Overall,she finds her job to be a fantastic fit for the combination of her mathematical skill set and personality.

For all of you who may be thinking, 'I won't actually use theorems or ideas from upper-level math courses outside of school,' they do come up!
