Julie Strickland

Eastman Kodak Company
Rochester, NY


B.S. - Mathematics, University of Florida
M.S. - Statistics, University of Florida
Statistician, writing mathematical and statistical programs.
Snowy winters and owning a winter coat were among the things Julie had to adjust to when she moved to the Northeast from Florida.

"So I wanted to come to a company where there were a large group of statisticians working together. I've been here almost six years and really I came here to get experience and move on. There are about 50 people in my department, most of whom are Statisticians and I knew I'd ask them a lot of questions, and I did. I got a lot of good experience. So I'm not as picky as I used to be now that I know what's out there, what my options are, how much I can like my job, not regardless of what I do, but I can like a wide variety of jobs."

Strickland: "I'm usually stumbling in around 8:05. Every morning I try. So I come in and I work a lot at my desk. Every project I'm working on is usually sitting on my desk in a folder. If it's put away I'll forget to do it. I look and see what projects I've got to do. I look at my calendar to see what deliverables I might have. We've got on-line calendaring so the best way to get a deliverable from somebody is to go ahead and schedule a meeting for a week or two ahead so the calendar is a nice reminder. I've got Post-its everywhere. So I look to see what needs to be done and then I just prioritize. Right now I'm working on three different programs."

Strickland: "Making myself very marketable and it's not something related to Math or the job, but I'd have to say that's the one thing I've worked hard towards because when I came to Industry I realized, 'Oh my goodness, there's some man at the top there and he might be crazy or he might not, but he has complete control of my life. He might decide to downsize or he might not,' and I guess it was really scary and I decided that I needed to get a little more security and there was no security coming from the company."
