I am Julia, a data artist and career changer with a unique perspective on visual storytelling and data communication.
My passion is to support career changers and young women to grow into Tech jobs, because I wished I had met someone like me earlier in life. I work with different initiatives to break with stereotypes about IT. Tech is our future and I want as many women and creative, communicate people to shape the future with me.
My journey began with a degree in fine arts, but my love for data visualization led me to make a career change and join Woodmark Consulting AG in 2019. My passion for understanding the intricacies of visual best practices, cognitive psychology and requirements engineering has helped me to become an expert in data visualization tools such as Tableau, Power BI and recently Quick Sight, I am IBCS certified and I conduct requirements engineering by IREB standards.
I am also a community leader and speaker, frequently sharing my insights and experiences at various events and workshops, like Tableau User Groups, Meetups or Tech events. I am the co-leader of data+Women Germany with Heidi Kalbe and organize and participate in the Tableau User Group Munich. My passion for mentoring has led me to become a mentor with CoffeeCodeBreak to many individuals who have transitioned into tech careers, and I have also organized my own events to empower others to pursue their goals.
Apart from my work in data visualization, I am also an artist and love to express my creativity through art. I use Instagram to share my works with other art enthusiasts. Based in Mainz, Germany, I strive to make a positive impact through my work and inspire others to pursue their passions.
