Anita Garimella Andrews
VP, Customer Success
After graduating high school when she was 16, Anita went to NYU and by 18, had a degree in Politics and a minor in Mathematics. This gave her plenty of time in life to do worthwhile things like foster her loves for eating desserts, working out, watching movies (which she has very low standards for), and reading. After fighting urban blight, improving immigrant rights, and raising the bar on NYC living by working for then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani, she decided campaigns weren't her thing and got her Master's in Computer Science from Stanford. Along the way, she's run product, marketing, analytics and e-commerce at a variety of companies including Ingenio (bought by AT&T YellowPages), Nutrisystem, and Sepiida (which she founded and was acquired by Delphic Digital). In her spare time, she tries to do a good job as a wife and mother to her daughter.

Michael Kreshtool
Data Analyst, Magento Services
Michael is from Wilmington, DE and traveled south for college, earning a degree in Mathematical Business from Wake Forest University. He always knew he wanted to come back north to Philadelphia after school, so he thanks RJ for making that possible. As a huge Philadelphia sports fan, Michael spends (too much) time watching Phillies/Flyers/Eagles games. When he’s not watching sports, Michael spends time playing them as well. As a member of the Wake Forest Club Baseball team, Michael batted an even .333 and ended with an infinite ERA. In addition to baseball, he also loves playing golf, although he is yet to break 90. Michael’s other hobbies include watching, quoting and discussing Seinfeld.

Ryan Williams
Video Production Strategist
Ryan came to RJMetrics as a soon-to-be graduate of Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business. While at Drexel, he developed an affinity for filmmaking and picked up a Film and Video Production minor. His most interesting cinematic accomplishment to date is the spontaneous virality of one of his YouTube videos. Ryan is likely to become visibly excited if he hears any of the following words: Skydiving, Ping-Pong, Cheez-Its, Mopeds, Steadicam, Tom Hanks, Two-Stroke, Snickerdoodles, French Roast, and 4K.

Kathryn Rich
Office Manager
Kathryn grew up in Havertown, a quiet Philly suburb you probably haven’t heard of. She studied Education and Spanish at Temple University. She worked as a teacher in special education classrooms for three years before she decided to shake things up and switch over to RJMetrics. Kathryn is often chastised by others for missing out on classic movies she “should have seen by now.” She recently watched the Star Wars movies for the first time and has developed an obsession. When the weather permits, she also enjoys camping and kayaking.

In his spare time, Tommy enjoys eating at all the great restaurants in Philly, and working out so he can eat even more. At the age of six, he thought it would be a great idea to legally change his name after his favorite superhero (at the time). Can you guess who?

Stef Montgomery
Data Analyst, Magento Services
Stef is a software developer turned data analyst (yes, she knows she’s doing her tech career backwards). After graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics, she worked in DC building software systems for the USDA and DHS. She decided to move to Philly after 4 years to be closer to friends and family, and was lucky to find an opening at Magento BI. Stef loves the collaborative work environment and the fact that being a data analyst is essentially solving puzzles all day. Outside of work, she loves crossfit, golf, EDM, and hardcore binge watching TV shows. Her personal record is watching a 4 season, 22 episode per season show in 5 days. You’ll have to ask her what show it is in person because it’s too embarrassing to write down.

Harker Roslin
Implementation Specialist
After 12 years of studying metaphysics and epistemology to the exclusion of all other pursuits, Harker spent four years working as a paralegal and considering law school. Instead, she transitioned to working in technology in 2014 with brash enthusiasm. When she's not knee-deep in implementations, process improvement, and planning her next hack-a-thon project, she can be found taking aerial classes at Secret Circus, running tabletop games that make her players cry, cooking elaborate meals for her beloved chosen family, and advocating for LGBTQ+ humans taking non-traditional paths into the tech sector. She lives in West Philadelphia with her beloved cat Gleipnir, and adores a wide constellation of amazing human beings.
