Jessica (Dillard-Huff) Lancaster

Data Analyst

My professional motto is “never underestimate the power of your mind to change your destiny.”

I do what you do because data analytics excites me, and I love sharing that excitement with others! My position allows me to do just that. I enjoy collaborating with clients about effective ways of using their data to drive strategic decisions, which directly support their organizational goals – that’s satisfaction!

My alma mates are Meredith College (BA, 2001) and NC State (M.Ed., 2006; Ph.D. Candidate, 2017)

My favorite invention of all time is the wheel.

If I were an animal, I would be a horse, of course!

The soundtrack of my life is 5FDP – My Nemesis

Three things you would be surprised to know about me are:

  1. Every Sunday afternoon, I used to race my Camaro SS down the ¼ mile dragstrip – always barefooted!
  2. I maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout my master’s degree and doctoral degree program.
  3. I have instigated mosh pits.

I love summer.
I can’t stand winter.

The best place on earth is Boone, N.C.

My nerdiest quality is reading statistics textbooks and research articles.

A random tidbit about me is that I am a perfectionist.
