While majoring in computer science, I minored in fine art and during my years at the University of Guelph I found I moved quite easily between typing on VT100 terminals and smudging pastels.
I believe that technology can change lives and try to bring an element of creativity and colour to everything I do. On this blog I’ll write about the adventures of working in technology, the challenges and joys of raising twin boys with my husband, the uniqueness of working as a women in IT and anything else I find interesting.
I currently work as a Microsoft Cloud Adoption Champion for Softchoice. What that means is I work to help customer get the most out of their investment in Office 365, Azure and the Enterprise Mobility Suite.
Before joining Softchoice, I worked in pre-sales for another Microsoft partner. Previous to that, I worked for 6 years as a technology evangelist for Microsoft. I co-hosted the AlignIT Manager Tech Talk Series and wrote on two Microsoft blogs: the Canadian IT Manager Connection blog and the Canadian IT Pro Connection blog. I have given countless presentations on technical and non-technical topics across the country.
Before joining Microsoft in 2006, I worked as an IT infrastructure specialist for over 12 years in various roles, implementing enterprise technologies and formulating IT strategies for organizations in Canada, Europe and the US.
