Why Vizioneer?

The "Vizioneer" comes from mashing two words that have shaped my world for most of my adult life - Engineer and [data] Visualizations (or Vizes to those who know what's up). Graduating from first from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, followed by Georgia Tech with my Bachelors and Masters in Civil Engineering, all of which taught me to think through anything and everything - problem solving, "engineering" solutions, teaching to the "ah ha" moments - is what I love to do. In 2010 that investigative, engineering mindset intersected a job change and a plunge into the world of Data Analysis. In the search for the next great thing I stumbled on to a data visualization and dashboarding product called Tableau software and things just took off. So now I guess you could call me that engineer with the sweet data visualizations - or just "The Vizioneer" :)

In 2013, I joined the incredible team at Slalom, focusing on Tableau and it's been an amazing experience. Recently in 2014, I was honored and humbled to receive Tableau's highest recognition of being named a Tableau Zen Master. Follow along to see what happens next :)

I'm heading to Africa

Anyone of us would love the opportunity to know that the work that we do day in and day out has an impact on the world. One of the distinct privilege that is offered to Tableau Zen Masters young and old, is the ability to participate in the Tableau Foundation's work across the globe. Many of you know about the opportunity that I had with Peter Gilks and John Mathis to take on the Ebola project last year. It was was a project that changed me, and changed the way that I see data.
This morning I am boarding a flight to Lusaka, Zambia to take the next step in the Foundation's current focus-eradication of Malaria in Zambia. As a partnership with the Gates Foundation and an organization called PATH.  I will be trying to write quick blog post each day to tell the story of what's going on and what we're doing to work with the team on the ground to bring the solution to life. Anya  A'Hearn and I will be joined by three members of the PATH team on a weeklong trip to the southern part of Zambia. We will be walking through the solutions created by Jonathan Drummey, Allan Walker, Alex Duke, and Anya that will help them see and understand their data in new ways.
We're about to take off! See you soon!

  3. Hello everyone i am happy to spread my testimony of a strong spell caster called Dr Great. I'm Kaitlyn Houston and i live in USA, my husband and i had a little fight because of that he wanted to divorce me i was so afraid to lose him because i love him very much so i search online for help and i saw alot of people's testimonies on how Dr Great help them and came out with positive results like Divorces, Cancers, Spiritual problems and for Barrens to give birth and others. So i emailed him and told him my problem and he gave me instructions which I followed and after 48 hours later he told me that the spell is done and my husband will no longer divorce me and when my husband came back from work he told me that he has canceled the divorce papers he didn't know what came over him that he is sorry I was so happy and I thank Dr Great for his help If you need Dr Great help email him at infinitylovespell@gmail.com and he will put an end to your problem
