Steph found Tableau & Alteryx as part of a previous role in analytics, realising quite how much she enjoyed using them when she moved to a company without them. This is when she discovered the Data School – a job that would allow her to work with them everyday!
She’s excited about the opportunity to use Tableau to make sense of data, using it for both analytics and data visualisation.
In her free time, she enjoys pushing herself to try new things and is always up for a challenge, including things such as fire walking, two skydives and a bungee jump.
