Biography

I am a Scrum professional living and working in San Diego, CA. I am a certified Scrum Master and Certified Product Owner. I have been practicing Scrum and Agile development for 6 years. I have spent the last 8 years in the video game industry and just recently moved into the financial industry at an AWESOME company called BrightScope where I am the one and only official Scrum Master!

I'm looking to become more active in the San Diego Scrum community and eventually would like to become a CSP and Agile Coach!

I am always looking for ways to improve my scrum process and look forward to meeting people who are invested in the scrum methodology. 

Personal life: I am a mother, singer in a rock band, hiker, I love to read and consider myself to be social and outgoing :)
