Tableau Software

A product consultant at Tableau whose entire job is helping people see and understand their data! I work in Tableau Desktop, Tableau Online, and Tableau Server all day every day, and I love helping my customers harness the power of the visual analysis cycle.


I graduated from the University of Virginia with an engineering degree-but I was a bad engineer. I hated Excel. I hated writing v-lookups, and how manual it could be to keep everything working right. Two years into my first job as a consultant, I discovered Tableau, and I fell in LOVE. I literally changed jobs so that I could use it all day every day. And I know that data is today's most valuable resource, especially to those in the nonprofit industry - and the ability to harness that data shouldn't only be available to for-profit companies. So I want to do my part to help people helping others see and understand their data - and use it to make decisions that will benefit the community at large.
