I am thrilled to be joining Microsoft as a Technical Evangelist serving the IT Pro community in the West Region. I’m passionate about social media for technologists, collaboration/workflow systems, CRM and bridging the IT/DEV gap with DevOps culture and systems thinking. I’ve been called the technology whisperer, and I love helping IT people learn new tools and strategies to better support their environments.
Prior to joining Microsoft, I founded ÜbergeekGirl, managing the IT systems of successful individuals and businesses in the entertainment and media industries in and around Hollywood and Beverly Hills. I earned a stellar reputation built on exceptional IT expertise, outstanding people skills, and fundamental trust. I helped our clients manage everything from Exchange servers, hosted exchange and Office 365, to cloud managed networking equipment, and BYOD environments. I integrated Mac and PC networks, and supported everything with a power button.
Specialties: Cloud and SaaS strategy, consulting and implementation. Vendor management, hosted exchange, exchange migrations, Office 365, mobile device management (MDM), bring your own device (BYOD), Mac/PC, SMB network deployment, virtualization, IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.
