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. 


Joy (Jhoie) Victor, Data Analyst at DataedX Group
Kaduna State, Nigeria

Joy (Jhoie) Victor is a Data Analyst at DataedX Group, where she focuses on their AIAI Network Public Interest project. She uses Tableau to examine data quality management and transparency issues in relation to the Atlanta BeltLine. Joy is involved in the Tableau Community through Tableau User Groups, by sharing content on her blog, being active on the Tableau Forums, and publishing content on Tableau Public. 

When starting her Tableau journey, Joy felt inspired by all of the amazing vizzes she was seeing, but she had a hard time grasping how to recreate them. She later discovered that this was a common struggle among new Tableau users so she started a blog to solve that problem. She creates content aimed at helping Tableau newbies better navigate their journeys, by interviewing Tableau experts, writing engaging tutorials, and in-depth documentation of cutting-edge Tableau solutions. 

Most recently, Joy has become a founding leader of the AI + Tableau User Group. She hopes to further the conversation about the future of AI in the data industry through her involvement in this TUG. The AI + Tableau User Group is having its inaugural meeting on Monday, June 3. Find more details on how to join here. 

Connect with Joy on Linkedin, X, Tableau Public, and on her blog.
