Hello Everyone! Looking forward to networking with this amazingly talented brain trust! I'm Director of Software Engineering by day, mom of two by night. At Datto, I manage the Datto SaaS Protection teams, leading the team to deliver on developing an industry-leading SaaS application data protection platform. Previously, I worked at Vistaprint, a $2B e-commerce retailer, as Software Development Manager for the Storefront, Product and Commerce teams.
Over the last 7 years, I've enjoyed the roles I've played in growing amazing engineering teams, while in tandem raising kids who I hope will make the world a better place. I’m a self proclaimed agile enthusiast with certifications as an Agile Coach, Scrum Master, and Kanban Management Professional.
In my personal time, I enjoy frequent visits to the Caribbean, reading, roasting marshmallows with my kids, enjoying food from around the world, drinking red wine with good friends, and making unforgettable memories (think sky-diving, snorkeling, winning a hula hoop contest).
Hey, I'm available every Monday at 9:00 PM (GMT)
