Data Prep and Stories, Getting Started, Visual Analytics, Dashboarding and Stories

I'm an Analytics & Insights professional, passionate about data visualization and telling a story that drives action. I love helping others work through questions they have (and making a difference).

I live in Chicago. Some examples of work (for fun) can be found at:!/


I have +13 years experience in Analytics & Insights within CPG, spanning quantitative disciplines.

I'm able to translate complex results into actionable insights for leadership & a non-technical audience. Over the last 4 years I've developed my data visualization skills (dashboards, infographics, and story), broadening my sphere of influence.

I love helping others understand a question, and when I don't know the answer (which happens all the time), I love learning for myself something new.
