Meet the Instructor: Heather Walsh

Favorite Application and Why:  Excel. Hands down. Maybe it’s because I am an English major and I want to exercise the logical part of my brain? Not sure. But I pride myself on the trove of Excel keyboard functions I have memorized, which allows me to really zoom around a spreadsheet.  

Favorite Excel Function:  Vlookup! It’s the best. I love it so much that I used to show it to classes at lunch break as a treat even if it wasn’t covered in the course.   

Favorite Keyboard Shortcut:  Ctrl + Z for undo. I use it all the time in my videos. If only there was a Ctrl + Z for life! 

Favorite Movie:  Godfather I and II are tied for first.   

Favorite Book:  Pride and Prejudice 

Favorite Restaurant:  Pepe’s pizza in New Haven. I grew up nearby and was lucky to have it many times! 

Which historical figure would you most want to meet and why:  Abraham Lincoln. I’d love to hear what the thinks of our modern world and current political landscape. 

Tell us something interesting about yourself:  I played rugby in college. I was a winger!
