Adding to her skill

porsche's story

Noncredit certificate programs offer the perfect mix of quality instruction, relevant educational content and a level of commitment that works for students like Porsche Everson at any point of their professional lives.

As an experienced consultant, Porsche Everson was used to researching a subject and presenting a report, but the traditional approach lacked interactivity and dynamism. Porsche wanted to ensure that her skills stayed up-to-date with emerging technologies. 

"While I was an expert in traditional tools, I had little to no experience in the newer data visualization tools," she said. "I realized that I needed to go back to school and learn about them." 

Porsche enrolled in the UW Certificate in Data Visualization and learned how to create visuals that were as captivating as they were informative. 

"It's the most amazing thing in the world to b able to look at the data surrounding an issue and truly understand the core conversations that need to happen," she said.
