About

Tableau is what I do.

About Me

Tableau Desktop Certified Associate | Alteryx Advanced Designer Certified | STLTUG Co Lead | STLAUG Co Lead

I am a data visualization expert in the St. Louis Area with 10 plus years of experience in business intelligence & analytics and nearly 6 years of experience in Tableau. I have a proven track record of being able to communicate and interact with individuals at all levels; successfully leading cross-functional groups and serving as an effective liaison between the Business and IT. I am capable of adapting quickly, and adjusting strategies mid-stream to better suit the needs of a project.

In my professional life, I currently work as the Head of Data Measurement & Reporting - International Markets for Cigna's, where I lead a team who develop data visualization, reporting and analytics insight for customers across the globe.

In the community, I am a co-lead of both the St. Louis Tableau User Group and St. Louis Alteryx User Group. Additionally, I am also helping provide Tableau and data visualization guidance to the St. Louis Area Foodbank as they look to gain value out of their data.

I look for opportunities to drive the Data & Analytics community further, whether it is through my participation in the St. Louis Tableau & Alteryx User Groups, or through previously leading #ThrowbackDataThursday, where each week we provided an historic dataset to the Tableau and Data Viz community for social vizzing and commentary.

In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my family, helping lead my son's Boy Scout Troop, cheering for my Mizzou Tigers and going to Disney World.

I am always looking for new challenges.
