#WeAreArity Wednesday: Rachel Kottke

In our #WeAreArity series, we shine a spotlight on Arity employees each week. This week, meet Finance Manager, Rachel Kottke.

When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…

At Arity, I am a finance manager accountable for managing Arity’s financial processes, planning, reporting, modeling, and analysis.

In your own words, what is Arity?

Arity is a company created by Allstate that uses data to develop insights that predict and manage risk. Arity is focused on making transportation smarter, safer, and more useful for everyone.

My favorite mode of transportation is…

100% my own car! I enjoy driving with the windows down, music playing and my dog in the back seat (hopefully being a good boy).

On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…

Spending quality time with my husband and dog; either relaxing or enjoying the outdoors. Ending the day by cooking a delicious meal for dinner.

If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?

I enjoy volunteering for animal related organizations or anywhere I can get my hands dirty and help with a project. I also enjoy buying Christmas presents for children in need with my mom and sisters.

Most people don’t know I…

I have a slight obsession with decorative napkins. I may or may not have several napkin drawers.

The theme song of my life is…

 Lovely Day by Bill Withers, it’s a great feel good song to wake up to and start your day right!

Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?

Depends on the time of day and where I am going. Most times I enjoy a silent ride.

Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?

Of course, I am all about trying new things. Not so sure I would buy one; I like being in control.

Favorite innovation pioneer?

Leonardo da Vinci, his inventions were so advanced for the time and his beautiful art work is still admired and cherished to this day.
