Before joining the team at IQS Research, Becki worked as a Research Specialist for the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A.

Becki graduated with a BA from Indiana University Southeast and a minor in Pyschology. While at IUS, her research focused on happiness enhancing strategies used by college students which culminated in several presentations and co-authorship of a book chapter. She also produced an award-winning meta-analysis of social skills interventions for elementary students. A true lifelong learner, Becki has taken courses at Centre College and Anderson College, in addition to completing 180 hours of training in analytics techniques, R programming, and data visualization from MIT.
