About Me

Helping others grow their skills and enhance their professional careers. That is my mission as Tableau Zen Master, Makeover Monday co-leader and co-author.

During the day, I lead the Business Intelligence team at Exasol and drive community engagement as the company’s Tableau Evangelist. I give talks, present webinars and create content around data analysis, data visualization and the best practices related to these topics.

And the passion for data doesn’t end there – #MakeoverMonday, the popular social data project I run with fellow Zen Master, Andy Kriebel, has become a global initiative to help data analysts improve their skills, build their portfolio and grow their professional network.

When I’m not sitting in front of a screen, I can be found swimming, cycling or running, traveling the world or making chocolate truffles.


I’d love to hear from you and have you join our global data community, so head over to Twitter and be part of it: #MakeoverMonday



  1. Hi,
    Is there a way in Makeover Monday to see various makeovers of just1 dashboard/workbook along with the original?
    Thank you


  2. Hi Eva,

    I am a data science student. I am working on a project analyzing economic data of honey production with bee colony losses. I came across your post on Bee Colony loss (https://trimydata.com/2018/04/30/mm2018-week18/) then followed it to the data.world to download the data. How did you pull bee colony loss data off of BeeInformed.com? You data visualizations are amazing!

    If you have more information regarding the Bee Informed data set, I am very interested in learning.

    Thank you,



  3. Love your book – going to be joining the makeovers community shortly, I have set up my word press blog site but…then I hit a wall.
    I have viz’s and other project management information that I think is blog worthy, but I am not sure how to get readers interested. It has to be more to it than just down loading an article, information or viz make over; sending the website to folk with the hopes that they will reply and leave a comment – I am sure it’s more than that. Maybe it’s not, but I think it is.
    I want the information to inform, enlighten and be engaging without falling into the “TLTR” (to long to read). Would you be so kind and suggest a resource that I could turn to, so I could set my blog correctly.
    Thanks and keep up the good work.


    1. Hi Regi, my tip is to simply start. Don’t try to emulate someone else just make it your authentic voice and write about the things you care about.
      Your audience will see your passion come through when you genuinely care about your topics.
      A year from now you’ll be glad you started today…

  4. I live in Erlangen, Germany. I work already with Tableau at an intermediate level, yet I would like to have private classes to improve on few especific areas. I am starting with makeoverMondays, which I find a great tool. Thanks for your contribution.. Could you direct me on few contacts who I could address for further Tableau Training?


      1. Hi Eva, sorry I missed your answer. I would like to have a private tutor. Could we set up a meeting at Exasol on Neumeyerstrasse for further talks?
