"Only the guy who isn't rowing has time to rock the boat" Jean-Paul Sartre
I'm a self proclaimed "Agile Dork” who has bounced around the IT world for over 20 years. I began my career in IT as a starving Graphic Designer and eventually shifted into Testing, Business Analysis, Product Ownership, ScrumMaster and Agile Coach roles.
I've worked for large corporations such as IBM, Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse and smaller family run businesses as well. The one thing in common is my passion towards injecting creativity, dissecting agile principles and promoting the Scrum values within the organization.
Obsessed with collaboration, continuous improvement, and experimentation; I'm always contemplating lively techniques for improving team dialogue, strengthening dynamics, making meetings more effective and coaching for high performance. I'm an energetic eternal optimist, the undercover investigator, and the one who wants to discover what's under the hood.
When not sprinkling agile fairy dust, you can find me in tree pose, playing with paper, or singing silly songs to my husband & two dogs.
