Community Highlight

To recognize new and consistent Tableau contributors—we’re excited to have a section within the weekly DataFam Roundup called the Tableau Community Highlight. Find out how to get involved. 

Kate Strachnyi, Founder of DATAcated
New York, USA

Kate got started with Tableau through a transition to a role as an insights strategy manager and was immediately inspired, causing a deep dive into the data visualization world. She initially got Tableau experience through hands-on challenges such as Makeover Monday and recreating dashboards but eventually launched her own YouTube channel, DATAcated, to share what she has learned and the essentials of becoming a successful data scientist.

DATAcated has now evolved to a media company that collaborates with data analytics, AI, and machine learning companies to enhance brand awareness and amplify content on social media platforms like LinkedIn and YouTube. Recently, Kate has focused on spreading brand awareness through discussions, such as her interview with Southard Jones, Tableau's Chief Product Officer, which was highlighted in a recap article about the latest Tableau Conference.
