Hello! I'm Gillian

Taking on the World, One Data Point at a Time

I’m a 30-something mother of two boys trying to navigate the world of motherhood, full-time work (research and analysis), personal time, running an e-learning business and family time!

I currently work full time for a financial conglomerate in Jamaica as a Senior Business Advisor / Data Analyst / Research Manager. I created this blog to provide some of the research I do to anyone interested enough to read it! I love data and analysis and I want to play a part in educating people on how to navigate their finances. 

I also work full time organising my family, i’m the Vice President of the U.S. Exchanges Alumni Association of Jamaica as a past Fulbright Scholar. I love fitness and exercise and most of all, I love enjoying life!

I Live Where Most People Vacation!
