I’m a geek through and through and I love to help others. I studied computer science when you could count all the women in the program on one hand. My career has taken me from developing tax software at Arthur Anderson to creating and supporting tools for developers at Microsoft. I quickly learned that helping others to be their best brings me the most joy. This led me to years of public speech coaching (for techies?), then to dev training, and then to agile coaching. All of this was done in service to my people: the geeks of the world.
I live in Seattle with my wife, 4 dogs and 1 cat. I also spend time supporting farm animal sanctuaries.
