I’m a Database Administrator and the technology systems lead at BCA Church, a faith community doing fantastic work to help those in need in Snohomish County, Washington

I have a healthy 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 assistant instructor and grader in the University of Washington's Data Visualization Certificate Program. It's here where I learn from the 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 are 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!
