I am an Agile Coach in Austin, TX, where I have taken opportunities to advance my career from a technical support service desk to a Sr. Manager Scrum Master with a Fortune 500 fintech company, and in the 3 years since I received my first Scrum certificate, I have advanced the Agile Principles and Scrum Values in 3 companies, 7 teams, 2 continents, and one nonprofit.

I coach teams and individuals.
I build relationships with introverts and analyticals.
I turn teams around, producing measurable results.
I facilitate a monthly MeetUp for Scrum Masters for Agile Austin.
I pursue avenues for personal reflection and professional growth.
I take and share opportunities to get a quality Agile education without spending a lot of money.
I form and maintain accountability partnerships.
I do the "hard work" that comes after reflection and during growth.
I have experience doubling my salary in 3 years.
I am experiencing success in an industry I never thought I'd work in!

I cohost monthly MeetUps for the Agile Austin Scrum Master Special Interest Group (SIG) and have a growing network of notable, inspirational, and helpful Agilists from whom I hear about and try out new ideas. I search out new learning as often as possible and have more than a handful of Agile and Scrum podcasts in my rotation. I've studied with Lyssa Adkins on her landmark "Coaching Agile Teams" book and keep a collection of books to recommend for deeper dives into topics.

As a mentor, I will be curious (always interested in learning), honest, and vulnerable. I will use a coaching mindset to have grace with you as I have with myself. I will cultivate a genuine interest in your success, as you define it for yourself.
