Credentials

Biography

I have over 5 years experience as a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Master and Product Owner. I have been been a part of a wide variety of successful development teams that include government and private industry projects. 

I have a deep commitment to Agile methodology and a desire to always be improving my interpersonal communication and technical skills. My history of Agile facilitation and project management combine for a unique perspective to the Scrum Master role. In addition, being a Product Owner affords me the possibility of discussing and understanding the needs of my stakeholders and the direction they would like to see their projects take. I am thrilled to participate in such a dynamic relationship. The rewards of guiding a successful product to fruition are immense and I truly value of the opportunities I have been a part of.
