Mumbai, India

Priya Yogendra Rana is a Business Intelligence Senior Consultant at Axtella Consulting. She stays active in the community by participating in community projects such as MakeoverMonday, VizforSocialGood and WorkoutWednesday and shares her Tableau knowledge through her blog on Medium

Priya’s blog began as part of a project to complete a course but upon reflection, she realized that she had looked for blogs that were easy to follow when she started learning Tableau – so she decided to create that experience for others. On her blog, she prioritizes ease of comprehension and chooses topics that she has figured out on her own or that have not been covered elsewhere. 

In her free time, Priya also enjoys creating vizzes on topics that interest her. Some vizzes Priya has published on Tableau Public include: India’s Wildlife, Women’s Economic Empowerment Globally, and The Music Industry in the Last 40 Years, among others. Priya draws inspiration from topics that enable her to learn something new and that connect with the history, nature, popular culture, and social issues of India.
