I am an Agilist for Apex Systems and VP of Planning and Events for the UXPA DC board. I have been using Agile for two years with both software development and marketing teams at financial technology companies including Capital One and Intersections Inc. (now Aura). I have recently joined Apex as Agile Practitioner, supporting the federal government in an enterprise-wide Agile transformation effort and building training materials on Agile practices and transformation topics.

Prior to becoming an Agilist, I've held a variety of roles including K-12 teacher, graphic designer, project manager, and events director for large fandom conventions. I am a Certified Scrum Master and a Level 1 Kanban Management Professional (KMP-1), and have earned a certificate in Product Management from General Assembly. My education also includes a B.A. in Philosophy with a minor in Mathematics from Allegheny College.
