It doesn't stop there. When you work in a field where you are often one of only a handful of women invited into conversations you see things. I seek out colleagues with design aesthetics, indomitable spirits, and perseverance toward an outcome or goal. When you can call them friend--all the better.
Amy Herman taught me a new way to think about data. I was intrigued by her work teaching visual intelligence at the Frick and connected with her book Visual Intelligence: Sharpen Your Perception, Change Your Life.
I have always had a passion for art. Traveling for work I prioritized visits to local museums over cocktail socials with clients or late evenings in hotel restaurants. The lessons I have learned help me engage audiences with exercises in perception and bias before we even look at a chart or a graphic.
My collaborators enjoy the sketches and design thinking pulled into creative briefs to better visualize scope and design of data projects big and small. You have Amy to thank.
Watch the freshly minted TED talk below. Distill it down to the 4 "A"s as described in the TED talk, ASSESS, ANALYZE, ARTICULATE, and ACT--and wait for the donut. There is always a donut.
You pretty much can’t get away from bacon or whiskey in the south. Put a doughnut in it and you’d be good to go—Hillary Scott, American country music singer-songwriter

Thank you for making a donution!
In a world of "evidence-based" medicine I am a bigger fan of practice-based evidence.
Remember the quote by Upton Sinclair...
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”
