Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

Five years ago I drove down in an old Cadillac to Virginia Beach, VA from Raleigh, NC with Michael Lotter, a coworker named Nas, and Josh Carlisle.  Now hundreds of events have occurred in places like Perth, Australia and Harrison, Arkansas to Toronto, Canada.  Three people dreamed a dream and it came true with what they thought would be topped at a single event. 

As the usual post goes I remember sitting down at the speaker dinner at some pizza parlor and Joel Oleson sat next to me.  I was 25 years old and beat red in the face wearing a backwards Red Saint Louis Cardinal’s hat.  I was wearing my usual jeans a t-shirt.  I just sat there and slowly ate my pizza.  This was the first of over 50 or 60 different SharePoint Saturdays that I attended.    It was the start of something amazing (and it was also the first time I met Dan Usher).

I got to meet the coolest kids, such as Cathy Dew, Scott Hoag, Clayton Cobb, Greg Hurlman, Jason Gallicchio, Tasha Scott, Dan Usher, Mark Rackley, Eric Harlan, Michelle Strah, Lori Gowin…It’s been a good five years.  Happy Birthday SharePoint Saturday!  To many more years of events.
