MelissaDraft_01_edited.jpg
MELISSA KOVACS
Statistical Strategist

Melissa is fanatical about finding meaning in data and seeing organizations make data-driven decisions that forward their missions.  She eats up particular challenges that require her to conduct complex statistical analyses and then explain these plainly to mathphobes.

She spends her pro bono time untangling homelessness data for the central Arizona homelessness provider community. In her non-data-crunching time Melissa swims, bikes, and runs (and sometimes puts all 3 sports together) and is a dog mom and Big Sister.

CHRISTINE CATALANO
Director of Details

Christine is a perfectionist, fixated on improvement and excellence. She gets excited about details, data and facts. "Hard working", "loves to be useful" and “creative" merely scratch the surface of the list of words and phrases we’d use to describe her.

When Christine isn't organizing and solving problems, you’ll find her exploring Colorado in search of adventure, hiking, traveling, painting, and spending time with her two awesome boys.

RIPLEY CLEGHORN
Data Viz Wizard

Although she’s always loved data, Ripley has welcomed a newfound appetite for design. She would describe herself as an intense observer of details with a passion for storytelling. Combining these skills, she is able to bring to life well-grounded and engaging visual stories that dive deeper than the spreadsheet.

Ripley is an occasional writer for the Data Visualization Society and when she’s not getting lost in beautiful visualizations, she’s listening to a podcast (suggestions welcome!), gardening, or making music.
