Tell us a little about yourself
Hello humans, nice to meet you. My name is Tricia Duncan, Lead Solution Engineer at Tableau a Salesforce company. I have self-titled myself a data luminary in hopes of inspiring other women to join this crazy and unpredictable force we call data and analytics.
Was there a moment when you first realized you had moxy?
The moment I realized I had moxy correlates with the moment I chose to be authentic...realizing in the very next moment that being authentic takes a lot of moxy. So how did this moment come to be you ask? I was sitting on the beach drinking a...ha just kidding...real life doesn't happen like that! The moment, or probably a series of moments, came from observing other women being inflicted with imposter syndrome. That's when I knew I needed to moxy it up! Now it guides me to stay authentic in hopes of empowering other women.
Share one unsuspecting thing about yourself?
Before I started my career in data and analytics I was actually working in the social service field while getting my Master's of Science degree in Applied Psychology. I have always loved helping people and at the time this was the best way I knew how. Fast forward a few years to me interviewing for jobs...I somehow received 2 job offers on the same day, just blocks from each other in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, one in social service and one in analytics. Long story short, money is motivating and I chose the North American Sales Analyst position and never looked back.
What’s something you read, watched or listened to that really resonated with you?
I just finished the book The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker - highly recommend it! I enjoy gathering in almost every sense of the word, I have my family over for dinner weekly; 1. Because I love their company 2. So I can keep my house clean on a regular basis. Reading about how to elevate those experiences with a purpose...game changer!
