My Tableau Story with Alice McKnight

The My Tableau Story series showcases the evolving and inspiring experiences of Tableau Community leaders. This episode features global Community leader and Tableau Social Ambassador, Alice McKnight.

Alice credits consistent participation in the Tableau community as the catalyst for her career transition from public health professional to data analytics consultant. After buying books, subscribing to YouTube channels and eventually following the Twitter #DataFam, she increased the 10% of her workday dedicated to data to 100% by transitioning mid career from the Center of Disease Control to an analytics consultant at a boutique agency.

After cautiously stepping into the Tableau Community social media space, she quickly embraced the community’s values of encouragement, continued growth, and curiosity for all things data. As a Social Media Ambassador she’s focused on giving back, connecting, and uplifting others new to Tableau.

Watch now to be inspired by Alice's journey -- she discusses:

  • Increasing the use of data into your daily work
  • Making a career pivot into data and analytics
  • Building data skills through Tableau Community programs + resources
  • Growing authentic connection through social media
