Elaine Yuan, Tableau & Alteryx Consultant
New York, USA
Elaine Yuan is a Tableau & Alteryx Consultant. She was first introduced to Tableau at a Data Analyst Training Accelerator. After having created data visualizations in Excel and Python, Elaine was amazed at how much easier it was to create and customize the same charts in Tableau.
As an active participant in Tableau User Groups and Community Projects such as Back 2 Viz Basics, Makeover Monday, and Workout Wednesday, and an author on Tableau Public, Elaine stays active in a lot of different areas of the community. In addition, Elaine has also published numerous blogs about things she has learned or done, such as her experience creating an interactive resume dashboard, sharing AAPI and Pride month vizzes she created, and other Tableau tips.
On Tableau Public, Elaine shares vizzes centered around topics in popular culture, diversity and inclusion topics, the products of her participation in Community Projects, and more. In just under a year and a half, Elaine has published 80 vizzes on Tableau Public, in addition to her other involvements in the community.
