Hi, there! I'm Brandeis.

A computer scientist by training, data geek by passion and always an educator who brings data awareness to Black women and cultivates data fitness in organizations. From making data skills in Python, SQL or Tableau easy to understand to talking about responsible data practices, it's necessary to know data from all its angles to navigate our everyday lives and professions.  

While knowledge is power, remember that the root of all knowledge is data.
