- Noni Williams finds her passion in solving problems and helping others understand that they are capable of solving problems too. This is evident in her current position as Manager of Solutions and Continuous Improvement where she works with data and extending the capacity for using data with after school professionals. She has a BA in Mathematics and is pursuing an MS in Mathematics with a concentration in Data Science. For Noni, data science is the perfect intersection between innovative problem solving, computer science, statistics, and math. In her free time, she enjoys writing poetry, nature photography, and solving problems on projecteuler.net.
