Hello I'm Dayna Berghan-Whyman. I'm a Contract Data Wrangler!
Dayna Berghan-Whyman's Bio:
Dayna Berghan-Whyman is a self-employed contract Data Wrangler. Available for remote data wrangling and information management (including technical support and staff training).
Data wrangling is the process of mapping data from one "raw" form into another format that allows for more convenient consumption. Getting accurate information into databases, making them more efficient and building reporting metrics that are easily understood are my forte!
Information management (IM) is the collection and management of information from one or more sources and the distribution of that information to one or more audiences. You'd commonly use IM in supporting an Electronic Documents and Records Management System (EDRMS). The roll out may include some form of training in the use of and the understanding in the basics of the records (for example, metadata).
I consider everything that comes my way. No job too small!
