Most recently, I served as CEO and Chief Product Owner at Scrum@Scale LLC, — a joint venture between Scrum Alliance and Scrum Inc. In our second year of operation, we were proud to have more than 100 trainers, and 4,000 practitioners across the globe. Prior to Scrum@Scale, I served as Managing Director of Scrum Alliance, and together, with a team of passionate professionals, we turned the organization from surviving, to thriving, and grew the community by more than 150%, serving more than 400,000 members. As VP of Community at Scaled Agile, my team and I delivered a platform that allowed the community to grow by more than 12,000 new members per month, serving more than 300,000 members and achieved an NPS of 55.
Before joining the agile community, I started my career in Information Technology. Beginning with TD Bank and Esso Chemical as a software developer, then honing my systems administration skills at Electronic Data Systems (EDS), a global information technology services company, where I found my passion for project and program management and leading teams to succeed.
