Biography - Data & Prospect Research Analyst
Before joining Utah Valley University, Shaina Richardson was the project manager for two nationally funded grants at Brigham Young University for three years. In this capacity she worked with professors and students from across the nation, promoting the advancement of mathematical research.
She also served as the chair of the Sampling Committee during the 2010 Utah College Exit Poll at BYU. Under her supervision, the sample her committee generated increased the accuracy of the final estimates to within a 1 percent margin of error. This accuracy was a significant improvement on what had been achieved in past exit polls.
Shaina is now a member of the Association of Prospect Researchers in Advancement (APRA) and joins UVU as the analyst for prospect research data.
Shaina recently graduated with a bachelor of science degree in statistics from BYU with an emphasis in applied statistics and analytics and a minor in management. She enjoys spending time with her husband, David, watching movies, taking nature walks, and photography.
