Lindsay Betzendahl

Data Viz Consultant at HealthDataViz

Welcome to my blog! I’m Lindsay, a current Tableau Zen Master and 2x Tableau Public Ambassador. I’ve been working with data visualization for over 7 years and have over 15 years working in the healthcare industry – originally as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist! Data visualization is my passion and I work hard to create beautifully insightful visualizations that enlighten and delight clients.

I’m a co-author of a book, Visualizing Health and Healthcare Data, along with my colleagues Katherine Rowell and Cambria Brown. I’m also featured in the Makeover Monday book, by Andy Kriebel and Eva Murray, and The Big Picture: How to Use Data Visualization to Make Better Decisions, by Steve Wexler. I’ve presented at numerous Tableau TUG meetings (Boston, Tucson, Berlin, Hartford, Philly), a Girls+Data talk and the Tableau Fringe Festival. I’ve given presentations at various forums including the Tableau Conference (2018 and 2019), Annual Research & Policy Conference on Child, Adolescent, and Young Adult Behavioral Health Conference (2016), The Women in Healthcare Data Conference (2019).

I am a busy wife and mother of two young boys. So, when I’m not vizzing, I’m likely caring for them or playing with them. I enjoy drawing (on a device and on paper), snowboarding, drinking a Sip of Sunshine, hanging with friends, hiking, boating, and running.

I’m a super easy-going person, so feel to reach out and connect. You can find me in the Tableau Community on Twitter (@ZenDollData), on Tableau PublicLinkedIn, and Instagram (@ZenDollData).
