About the Author

Ashley Ohmann started her career in technology as a Flash and HTML developer at the Emory University School of Medicine while studying Classics as an undergraduate at Emory University. After learning how to write SQL to help create a fraud detection system for a client, she pursued information management and data analytics as a vocation. While working for a multinational manufacturing company, she was asked to evaluate Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server; consequently, her team became one of the first to implement the suite of tools for their enterprise.

Ashley's career with Tableau's products has included work as a consultant, trainer, and a professional services practice director. She is a frequent contributor to the San Francisco and Phoenix Tableau User Groups.

A native of Highlands, NC and Atlanta, GA, Ashley is a proud alumna of Rabun Gap – Nacoochee School. She also studied German and Chemistry at Mount Holyoke College before graduating from Emory. Ashley's roots go back to south Georgia; she grew up listening to the stories of her large extended family, which inspired her to spend her career helping other people learn how to tell their own stories using a variety of media. Currently, she lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family, where they enjoy skiing, the beauty of God's great creation, and practicing permaculture on their 10 acre farm.
