Biography

EDUCATION 
Current first year graduate student at CIPA's MPA, Priscilla Koo Wilkens has an Industrial Engineering Bachelor Degree from Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
Priscilla started her career as an intern for Unilever in a Latin America marketing position. After this experience, she took on a challenge to become an entrepreneur in Brazil - one of the world's most difficult countries for entrepreneurship, according to World Bank's Doing Business Report.
After six years navigating through managing and technical roles, she joined Central Bank of Brazil, where she spent the last 9 years working with credit information, both from an IT perspective and from a Banking perspective. For the last 2 years Priscilla managed a team that was assigned as steward for one of the world's largest government owned credit data-bases. By becoming a manager in a public institution and stewarding microdata, she had the opportunity to develop hard skills (business intelligence tools, data management knowledge, credit information application) and soft skill (leadership, communication, negotiation and conflict resolution).
