Tran was a trained infectious disease epidemiologist who got lost on the way to the CDC, and ended up in healthcare data analytics after dabbling in data modeling, statistical programming, & health economics outcomes research. She is a seasoned healthcare data strategist & data governance SME, with additional expertise in user centered design & ITIL data service design. Currently, Tran's specialty as a Data Strategist & Data Governance Practice Lead is to systemize, standardize, and harmonize data processes, to optimize various internal & external data assets, and align local data strategies & needs across functional groups and to the enterprise data strategy and requirements.
When not evangelizing the joys of information governance & data integrity, Tran likes to write about the grit & glory of women's work and the everyday women who do them, along with the economic tyranny of periods, and ruminations on how to talk about cultural appropriation to a 9 year old and various AAPI issues. She also enjoys evangelizing the joys of caftans & all sartorial things gold, gaudy and gauche (Mrs. Roper is a personal hero). She also has a dog named Klaus, who looks like an old, bearded professor & is addicted to balls.
Tran is also currently a contributor to & former board member of Women in Data NYC, focusing more on career development workshops for women in various data driven fields & stages of their profession.
