Avolyn Fisher caught my eye by writing an article on LinkedIn about how she tried stand-up comedy and how that training helped her in her day job as a data analyst. I was very intrigued, mostly, because I have wanted to practice standup but am afraid to, so I have a lot of respect for those that try but I also wanted to talk to Avolyn so that she could tell her story to you all. A story I think you will get something out of.
