I am an agile consultant and trainer passionate in helping organizations in their agile adoptions within their departments, programs or simply piloting one team. I have experience in a variety of industries from travel, education, retail, banking, credit card, auto and health with special interest in non-IT areas of organizations such as marketing.
I find great joy in helping others reach their own potentials in solving business problems, become predictable and innovative. I believe in smart, innovate using the framework that meets your needs. The best reward is creating independent, self-sufficient agile programs and teams that can continue their agile journey on their own from my help.
My background started in education, but my professional journey moved into working with software development with focuses in product and portfolio/project management which eventually lead me to my passion with agile. Agile started with helping to improve how we think and approach developing software, but has transcended beyond the technical realm. I still work with IT areas of the business, but I keep any open mind to how agile can help with other areas; like my former roots in education. I hope you enjoy my journey with agile in both traditional software development and area outside these limits.
