Hi everyone! It’s time for another edition of Nerds Behind Credit Karma. Last month, we introduced you to Sean, one of our many great Data Analysts. Today, you get to meet Katrina, our superstar Human Resources Coordinator.
Katrina says she is both an only child and the youngest of five. Try solving that riddle! She also recently went to Burning Man for the first time—an experience that left her with a little sunburn, outdoor survival skills, and lots of great stories. Welcome back to civilization, Katrina. We’re glad the porta-potties didn’t get you!
