My passion for agile is lived daily at Growing Agile and Nomad8. My personal motto is ‘be brave’, and I embody this by taking on challenges one small step at a time. On weekends you can find me trail running on a mountain or playing with my mutts.
I'm an Agile Trainer and Coach at Growing Agile. I try to bring fun into everything I do whether it is work or home. At work I love helping teams and individuals find ways to improve and enjoy what they do. At home I enjoy playing xbox, cuddling with my cats, and drinking champagne.
