#WeAreArity: Jelena Mitrovic
When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I manage best practice financial processes, perform financial planning and reporting, and create analytics to assess financial product performance.
In your own words, what is Arity?
Arity is a technology company founded by The Allstate Corporation that transforms data into actionable insights to help our customers better manage risk.
My favorite mode of transportation is …
My car. It gives me the freedom and flexibility to travel locally anywhere and anytime with comfort and privacy. Of course, the heated seats help too!
On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me
Spending time outdoors with my boyfriend and our families, enjoying the beautiful sunny weather and indulging in a delicious meal.
If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?
I tend to gravitate towards any and all animal-related organizations. Animals bring joy to so many people and I believe they make us more compassionate. I especially love dogs and I must admit, I have trouble walking down the street without petting someone’s dog!
Most people don’t know…
I have a 125lb dog! After 3 years, I’ve gotten so accustomed to his size but am always reminded of how big he is when pedestrians cross to the other side of the street when they see us. Little do they know, he’s just a just a fluffy sweetheart!
The theme song of my life is…
Happy by Pharrell Williams! It’s such a fun and inviting song with uplifting lyrics and an incredibly contagious beat. I try to tackle each day in a similar way – with positivity and a smile!
Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?
I always prefer talking to my rideshare driver. It’s always fun to learn about someone new that I otherwise never would have crossed paths with.
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
Yes, I would get in a self-driving car! I’m a very open person and believe that self-driving cars will substantially improve mobility, increase productivity for its passengers, and decrease distracted driving.
Favorite innovation pioneer?
Elon Musk. He’s an incredibly passionate and revolutionary entrepreneur and a skilled executioner. He is a real-world Tony Stark!
