I have a strong respect for data integrity and its value in helping organizations stay relevant. I believe that visualizing data can make data analysis quicker and easier, which can also reveal data insights that can turn into catalysts for positive change.
I am committed to the practice of regularly assessing, testing, and developing an organization's Technology Systems in order to reach the highest level of efficiency.
I am a lifelong learner and an instructor and grader in the University of Washington's Data Visualization Certificate Program. It's here where I learn from the other instructors who are some of the very best practitioners in the field of data visualization.
I live in Mukilteo, Washington. I am a wife to Rob, a mother to 3 sons: Reggie, Quinn, and Britt, a mother-in-law to Rachael, and a grandmother to my new grandson, Rowan! Most of the reflections in my Diary will be posts about my family and travel experiences (because travel is a must when two of your sons live in Europe).
I hope this blog inspires you to share your learning experiences with others. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on Twitter!
