First Post!!

As a part of my new job with Pragmatic Works, I am supposed to “share my knowledge” on blog posts. So this is the start of my knowledge sharing! But it’s boring to just read about work, so I’ll be blogging a bit about me, a bit about my work, and a bit about my life. You can also follow me on Twitter (@MsKathyV), on Instagram (@MsKathyV), and on Facebook ( for more peeks into who I am and what I do.

If you don’t know me, or don’t know what I do, I work for Pragmatic Works, a Microsoft Partner company, as a SQL/BI Consultant. Basically I work with lots of companies that are using Microsoft database products to manage their data and their information. I’ve been working on this software since before Microsoft bought it way back in 1993. I love working with data and databases, and I’m branching out into a lot of data visualization tools (fancy words for reporting).

I am married, and have 3 kids and 7 grandkids! I live near Seattle, but I travel quite a bit for work. I love travel and have passion for photography. I try and include photographic outings in all of my travels.

So, I will be blogging about SQL Server, Business Intelligence, Reporting, Data Modeling and other technologies related to data, as well as photography, arts, and stories about me and my family. I don’t expect every post to appeal to every reader, but hopefully you will like at least one category of posts!

Welcome to my life!
