Freddie Mac, Project Management Tech Lead
June 2012 - July 2013, Washington,DC, US
During this period of time I transitioned from supporting waterfall projects to supporting the Freddie Mac Agile projects. Working with experienced Agile Coaches and several Agile vendors such as Lithespeed, I was directly engaged with a Coach in order to develop my Coaching abilities to support Agile Projects in an organization new to Agile/Scrum.
