I, Samantha D. Spivey, was an experienced Analytical Chemist of 15 years within the government sector of environmental forensics. Well versed in data technology, analytics, and machine learning, I have pivoted my career into a strictly Data Science role, or Data Scientist^2 as I like to call to it.
Love for data analytics begun during graduate level statistics courses while working towards my Master’s of Science degree at Colorado School of Mines. The classes were required to utilize the open source software called ‘R’ for all coursework, exams, and final projects and thus an interest in programming also evolved. I have completed certification from Microsoft in Data Science as of April 2019 and I continue to pursue further education in Python, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence topics such as Deep Learning, NLP, and Computer Vision.
Currently located in and a native of the beloved heart of the USA, Denver, Colorado. Though I love to travel the globe, Denver is home where I’m a superfan of Rugby Union 15s and 7s, an experienced dog rescuer of 7 years, and an avid cross sticher.
