Groups I belong to



I've been working in Agile methodologies since 2001.  I did a career change from Social Worker to Developer through the Object Oriented Software Techology post graduate program at St Mary's University in Halifax.  I did my internship at TransCanada Pipelines where I worked with ThoughtWorks.  I met Ken Scwaber there in 2002 as he was teaching us Scrum and helping us kick off a large project.  I joined ThoughtWorks in 2003 as an consultant.  I was on the road for years working in many client sites mostly across North America.  I was able to travel to the India and Uk offices as well.  I joined Gap Inc Direct in 2007 as their Chief Agilist and lead organization transformation efforts, which is my specialty now. I moved to Paris in June 2009 and am now consulting in France.
