After moving to London from France following her MA in International Business at the University of Provence, Sylvie started a career in the luxury retail industry, combining her aptitude with international sales and customer service as an export manager. Nine years down the line, Sylvie realised that she enjoyed working on pivot tables and building sales reports far too much and set upon starting a new career where she could do just that as her job. This meant learning the basics of SQL in her spare time and discovering Tableau.
Trying to find like-minded people led Sylvie to come across the Data School at a Data Plus Women event, where she was thrilled to not only find other women who shared her passion for data, but also hear lots of praise about the programme at the Data School. Having had so much fun working on Tableau to build her portfolio, Sylvie knew that this new path was the right one for her.
In her spare time, Sylvie loves to travel and discover new cultures, keeps fit by boxing and pretends she is a celebrity chef in her kitchen.
