Erin graduated from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois where she focused on creative writing and photography. With her educational background firmly rooted in the humanities, Erin’s approach to data analytics draws heavily on storytelling and design. Erin honed her Tableau skills while working at Washington University in St. Louis, where she co-founded the university’s Tableau User Group. Under her leadership, WU TUG grew to over 200 members and transcended all seven schools.
In 2017, Erin left her position as Research and Visual Analytics Specialist in the Provost’s Office to start her own education business, Data Dozen. Working with students and professionals alike, Erin strives to demystify Tableau by leading hands-on workshops that make data visualization–and by extension, data itself–approachable, exciting, and meaningful. Her workshops have been hosted at universities across the nation, including Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, Williams College, and Yale University. Erin also partners with coworking spaces to provide workshops for the public. Recent collaborations have included the Cambridge Innovation Center and Peloton Labs, among others.
After a year of full time Airbnb travel, Erin and her husband Jay have settled in Kansas City with their lanky pup Odin. Their blog, bnbNomad, serves as a resource for Airbnb hosts and guests, and produces another stream of data ripe for visualization.
