Valerie Roberts is a business analyst, self-taught graphic artist, and resident Jack-of-All-Trades in the Office of Institutional Research and Planning. In addition to curating and creating content for the department’s website, she designs infographics and data visualizations, produces the annual online/archival Fact Book and print Mini Fact Book, and assists other analysts with research projects. Known to her colleagues as the “Sherlock Holmes of Data,” Valerie has acquired a working knowledge of descriptive statistics, SQL, query modeling, and research methodologies. Her professional goal is to develop web-based data products for decision support.

Valerie has a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and over twenty years of experience working on projects where technology and creativity intersect. Outside of work, she is an avid reader and film buff, and recently took up drumming. An unrepentant autodidact, she continues to study her passions: computer science, programming, web development, graphic design, and fantasy art illustration. (Though she won’t admit it, Valerie also has a flair for writing.)

Felicia R. Williams is a data scientist for Institutional Research and Planning. Her analytical methodology combines statistics and programming to help drive institutional decisions related to student support and best practices in higher education.

While at GDOT, Felicia assisted with a statewide initiative to develop a new method for disseminating federal funds for the maintenance of Georgia’s state routes.
