Username:  @ChrisMendoza 
Bio: Chris Mendoza works as a Mail Services Supervisor at California State University, Chico. Around eight years ago when he started in his current position, he was asked one simple question, "How many packages did we receive this year compared to last year?". After spending too much time on that one question, Chris began learning how he could use Excel to answer that question faster. Always looking to learn and improve, Chris eventually began learning how to use DAX and Power Query within Power BI to solve many work-related projects. Chris tends to focus on process bottlenecks that prevent people from accomplishing their tasks accurately and quickly using any "tool" that will get the job done.
