Women Who Reign: Liz Cleveland

12091245_2953279387914_8021606275561239395_oMeet Liz Cleveland! She is an extraordinary woman with a diverse set of interests and experiences. I first met Liz when she was in high school in New Jersey. I was immediately impressed with her dedication to both academia and ballet. This multi-talented girl then moved to Chicago with her family to finish out her high school career and later  attend the University of Illinois for undergrad. She took a full-time job after finishing her degree. After a year of working, she attended the University of Chicago where she received a graduate degree in statistics.

Liz stands out as a role model and inspiration. She is an independent thinker, world traveler, and she has a fun sense of humor! I am fortunate to have known her, watched her grow into the confident, beautiful woman she is, and I am truly blessed to call her my sister-in-law!

 

LizCTell us about yourself along with a fun fact!

I live and work in Chicago as a statistician for a market research company, IRI.  I love to travel and meet new people.

 

Who is someone who inspires you? What knowledge have they imparted?

Watching my parents, aunts, and uncles fearlessly pursue their goals has also been an inspiration.  Also, Thor, the Norse god :).

Deciding who I want to be was always a challenge.  I have always known that I love math.  My decision to major in statistics ultimately set my course.
