Brandy is a fashion-obsessed data geek. She started her career at Union Pacific in a mechanical engineering role, but quickly realized her passion was in healthcare. After years of working at the Nebraska Medical Center in roles such as Six Sigma Black Belt and Manager of Perioperative Services Operations, she joined the HDR Omaha office in 2012 as a healthcare operational engineer consultant. Brandy helped pioneer the use of a new simulation tool for process improvement by creating virtual environments of real data, processes, and capacity to test scenarios before they are implemented. Now, she is working to combine these same concepts with big data, predictive analytics, and gamification to predict and address the healthcare infrastructure of the future. Outside of work, Brandy is a fashion maven, a family gal, a diehard yogi and runner, an adventurous traveler, and a hearty laugher.
