Thank you for your consideration!
I live outside of Bozeman, MT with my husband and 5 children, 1 dog, 3 cats and 15 chickens. I am a robot enthusiast and FIRST robotics mentor. I also own a Karate studio and volunteer a considerable amount of time to teaching and empowering women and children. And in what spare time I have, I run marathons.
I currently am a Principle Engineer for Red Hat working in the Office of Technology. I have been with Red Hat for 5 years. I am a Kubernetes contributor and an Apache Ambari committer. I am an active contributor to the Kubernetes Storage SIG, which my most recent feature to enable raw block devices was released in 1.9. Prior to working at Red Hat, I worked at IBM for 14 years. I worked in embedded systems development for several years before moving into global enterprise level services. I thorough enjoy working in Open Source and built a successful product at IBM based on Open Source technologies that still makes IBM millions of dollars each year.
A little about me:
Hello TOC,I am wishing to be nominated for the open seat on the TOC board. Alexis and Chris asked I reach out to the board to request one of you nominate me.
