Analytics Professional
Let me tell you about myself, and why I became interested in Tableau and Power BI.
I was the office Excel and SharePoint expert, creating macros and writing JavaScript to streamline workflows and create reports. I was a valued contributor to the team, but for a while I didn’t seem to be learning new skills. A friend gave me a bit of advice – “don’t confuse seven years of experience with one year of experience seven times.” Friends were mentioning that there was a lot of buzz around Hadoop and Big Data, so I decided to go back to school.
I earned a Masters in Analytics from NC State in 2013 and now work as a data analyst in the health insurance industry. Using tools such as SAS, Tableau, and Teradata, I conduct analysis to help my company improve healthcare affordability and customer engagement.
