Manager of Learning Services
Acquia, Inc.

I've worked with Acquia for several years, creating learning content. I earned my Masters of Science focusing on learning and technology to support learning. I work with partners as well as the Learning Services team in delivering the training program across the globe.

When Dries asked at DrupalCon San Francisco: "Has Drupal changed your life?" I was one of the people who stood up. It's an amazing experience, and feel I'm participating in a larger cultural shift which shows the benefits of collaboration and working together. This gives me hope that the world is getting better.
