Sydney, Australia

Candice Che is the Finance Data Viz Lead at Woolworths Group. She enjoys participating in Tableau community projects that serve as a medium for her artistic expression. In these instances, Candice creates artwork using tools such as Figma and Procreate, which she then uses as background images for her dashboards

Candice’s favorite part of the DataFam is how generous everyone is in sharing their learnings and feedback. Candice gives back to the community through the Tableau Forums, through her new blog, and by sharing tips through Twitter. She has also participated in community projects such as Viz for Social Good, Iron Quest, Games Nights Viz, and Project Health Viz

In the near future, Candice hopes to begin a project that brings together her interests of gaming and East Asian cultures with her Procreate artwork. Her long term goal is to eventually participate in IronViz and speak at Tableau Conference but in the interim, Candice plans on continuing to build her brand through her blog and Linkedin and become more involved in the community. 

Connect with Candice on Linkedin, Twitter, and Tableau Public
