I live for helping people and teams unlock their full potential! My early career was in traditional project management. As soon as I learned about agile I became a strong-advocate. My agile "ah-ha moment" was when I witnessed limiting WIP repeatedly leading to higher throughput - mind blown! My passion grew as I experienced the improvements agile had on my team's morale and engagement. 

My career path made a quick pivot from project management to coaching, and I haven't looked back! I was one of the coaches who led Vistaprint's Creative Agency through their agile transformation - educating on agile principles and working with the teams to apply them ultimately reducing lead time for creative work by 63%.

I was asked to join the start-up Vistaprint Corporate Solutions in early-2016 when they needed a Scrum Master (or "Scrum Queen" as my teams fondly nicknamed me) to help form new technology squads and bring their product vision from idea to reality. It's been amazing to see those teams go from forming to high-performing and that product go from a walking skeleton to a million dollar solution. 

My role at Vistaprint Corporate Solutions is now that of an Agile Coach. My current focus within this growing, start-up culture is educating & coaching leaders across the org and helping teams find ways to apply agile across all functions - Marketing, Sales, Design/Creative, Finance, Technology - and across all locations - US, Jamaica, Spain, Tunisia, and India. I love working with such a diverse group and helping people have agile "ah-ha moments" all their own!
