Stephanie and Shannon are friends, colleagues, and data witches.
Stephanie Bruno is the Associate Director of Informatics at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), a Microsoft Data Platform MVP, and the leader of the Pittsburgh Power BI User Group. She brings her passions for data wrangling, modeling, visualization, and analysis together in Power BI to enable EGPAF to make better decisions in their life-saving work of ending AIDS in children. Stephanie has spoken about Power BI at the Pittsburgh PUG, the Gartner Data and BI Summit and the Microsoft Data Insights Summit, as well as at various Non-Profit conferences such as InsideNGO and MerlTech. She recently complemented her experience with an MSIT degree from Carnegie Mellon University focusing on BI and Data Analytics.
Shannon is a Microsoft Certified data and analytics professional with a background in global public health, specializing in Business Intelligence training and consulting. Her focus is on enabling non-profit and government decision makers who rely on complex and disparate data systems to gain insights and drive strategic decision making. Shannon is passionate about using data to improve the lives of those who need it the most.
Shannon leads the Washington, DC Power BI User Group and really enjoys watching people connect and lead each other to their lightbulb moments! When she’s not wrangling data, Shannon enjoys anything outdoors, including her latest hobby, flying trapeze!
