Student Spotlight: Meet Dannie Fountain

Dannie recently took Promotable’s Data Jump Start class and here is what she had to say.

Why did you originally sign up for Promotable?

I was trying to advance my data analytics skill - I'm in a sales/marketing role that requires data science skills and I have very little expertise in this space.

What stuck with you the most about the course?

I was able to get a really good foundational understanding of excel / data analytics and how to manipulate data in different ways / start to pull out stories.

Out of everything you learned, what have you found yourself using the most?

All of the excel skills! I'm able to evaluate data and tell better stories about performance because of what I learned in the Promotable course.

Now that you are smarter about data, what are the next challenges you are facing?

Next, my challenge is better understanding how to pull insights out of data. I now know how to work with data, I need to understand how to share the story the data is telling.

What new opportunities have you found because of your enhanced skillset?

I've been able to work on some projects at work that have impacted my entire vertical / organization because of my better grasp on data.
