My name is Andie Parazo, and I have built my career in Human Capital. I started my career in education, where I was a teacher, researcher, and Talent Recruiter. I then transitioned into the tech industry, where I worked at Google and Facebook as a Tech Recruiter. My MBA focus area at McCombs is in Business Analytics. I'm currently exploring roles that integrate my passion for work culture and my developing skills in analytics. I currently live in Austin with my wife and our five pets. In my free time, I love running with my dog, reading, and exploring Austin!
