Hey! I’m Lindsay, an ex-licensed marriage and family therapist turned into a Tableau junkie! While I can give you advice on how to control your emotions when your data goes berserk or maybe can help you fall in love again with your data set after it has lied to you again and again, it’s probably best we stick to the basics.

I’m a busy wife and mother of two young boys. I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, drinking craft beers, eating jalapeños, and cheetahs are my favorite animal. All that is to say, I’m laid back but love to be challenged and busy; I enjoy patterns; I’m always up for a challenge; and data inspires me.

I’m Tableau Desktop Certified and a current Tableau Public Ambassador. I’ve achieved 6 Viz of the Days by Tableau Public, 3 Vizzie Awards (by the Tableau Wannabe Podcast crew), and have given number presentations on Tableau and data visualization at conferences and Tableau User Groups.

This blog is encapsulates a lot of who I am and may feel a little “all over the place at times” and that’s because that is often my personality. However, it’s dedicated mostly to my efforts to connect with, inspire, and learn from, the community at large. You’ll find details about my community initiative, #projecthealthviz, Tableau tutorials, data visualization reflections, and some intersections of art and data.

You can find me in the Tableau Community on Twitter (@ZenDollData), on Tableau Public, LinkedIn, and Instagram (@ZenDollData).
