Stephanie and Shannon are friends, colleagues, and data witches.
Stephanie is a forever data witch, currently disguised as a Business Analyst at Microsoft. She casts spells to wrangle, model, visualize, and analyze data to help improve the products you know and love like Power BI and the Power Platform. In addition to the school of witchcraft, she earned a Master’s degree from Carnegie Mellon University in BI and Data Analytics in 2018. Prior to working at Microsoft, she was a Data Platform MVP and a director of Informatics at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), where she had the good fortune to meet and learn from her sister witch, Shannon.
Shannon is a data and analytics witch with a background in global public health. She’s currently casting spells at Microsoft, creating learning materials for Power BI and Synapse. Stephanie introduced Shannon to Power Query many moons ago, and she fell in love with the magic of Microsoft BI tools. Shannon spends as much time as possible in the data community, participating in user groups and working with the fabulous Workout Wednesday team. Solving data puzzles, connecting brilliant minds to each other, and getting stuff done are some of Shannon’s favorite charms!
