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.

You can find me on InstagramTwitter, Facebook, and Linkedin. And check out my store on Society6, full of great items with my original paintings on them.
