About Me

Hello! I’m Phil Shepard.

I'm a versatile, high-energy, and results-oriented business analytics professional with experience collecting, transforming, and organizing data to drive informed decision-making. I have an excellent understanding and proficiency of platforms for effective data analyses, including SQL, spreadsheets, Tableau, and R. I also have strong communication, organizations, and analytical skills.


I recently completed the Google Data Analytics Certificate – a rigorous, hands-on program that covers the entire scope of the data analysis process.


I'm transitioning from 18+ years of success in establishing and growing multiple businesses within the finance, real estate, media, and advertising industries and am currently seeking a full-time role in the field of data analytics.
