about Dylan Williams ’12
Working in the world of investment banking, Dylan serves as the product controller in the finance department of Credit Suisse. As a member of the Equity Derivatives-Prime Services team, she monitors and controls the bank’s sales and trading activities through profit and loss and balance sheet reporting and analysis.
After Stone Ridge, Dylan attended Elon University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Finance in 2016. Dylan acknowledges that pursuing a career in a male-dominated field was challenging. But, as she explains, she was thrilled to take on the challenge. “Being one of a few female students in my finance courses was a contrast to my all-girls education at Stone Ridge. As a ‘lifer’ I was accustomed to being a part of a small community of driven young women. However, I found pursuing a career in a male-dominated field to be an exciting challenge. I, too, was interested in the variety of career paths the industry provided, from financial analysis to financial advising and management.”

From creativity to improving people’s lives, Megan finds software engineering extremely fulfilling. Recently, Megan used her creative juices to work on a tool that helps smooth out randomized data using pattern recognition. “I had a lot of fun with this because the work is very creative. Seeing it light up was extremely satisfying and there’s no feeling better, or scarier, than having your code go live to hundreds of millions of people.”
