Annie Nelson

New York, USA

Annie Nelson is an Analytics Consultant. She shares her knowledge on Linkedin, YouTube, and TikTok and stays active in the community by participating in community projects and Tableau User Groups. 

Before she dove into data analytics as a career, Annie began creating videos on TikTok. She did not set out to gain a large following and after landing her first role in data analytics, she had considered her content creation journey over. However, she began receiving daily messages from viewers stating how helpful her videos were to them in leaving dead-end jobs, switching careers, doubling their salary, etc. which helped her make the decision to keep going. Annie now has almost 70k followers and posts videos multiple times per week about her data journey and to share resources. 

Despite her strong fan base on TikTok, Annie’s content focus is now on Linkedin, where she has over 50k followers. Her goal is to be the content creator that she needed when she was trying to get into data. She posts primarily about portfolio building, job searching, soft skills needed to be in data, and creating meaningful dashboards that people actually use. 

Annie is also active on YouTube and Tableau Public, posting about similar topics to her other platforms but she believes that she has finally found her niche on each platform which is what has allowed her to be successful.
