Born and raised in Paraguay, Amelia spent much of her time drinking amazing coffee and avoiding the 40 ̊ C heat. She spent a year volunteering in Israel at the Bahá'í World Centre before arriving in Vancouver to pursue a B.A. in Cognitive Systems at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Given her interest in business she also completed a minor Commerce.
During her final year at UBC, Amelia worked as a research assistant at the Attentional Neuroscience lab, studying the relationship between cognition and gait. This is where she discovered her interest in data analysis and project management – and that gait is really just a fancy word for the way people walk.
Amelia joined Sentis right out of university. As a Research Analyst she works with different teams to develop, execute and deliver qualitative and quantitative research projects for Sentis’ private and public sector clients.
Amelia loves to nap, travel and meet new people - as long as it does not interfere with her "occasional" binge-watching of a new TV show.
Small reminder: Don't ask Amelia about Uruguay (she is from Paraguay). But feel free to ask her anything about Messi.
