In my own words…
I am excited to join the team at NERD - I grew up in the Boston area and I am look forward to growing our presence here. I have been working in the Marketing arm of US Developer & Platform Evangelism Group (DPE), focused on programs that encourage K12 students and teachers to learn Microsoft technologies like Kodu, Expression, XNA and the Kinect SDK. This year, I managed Microsoft’s partnership with FIRST Robotics and sharing the Kinect SDK with high school teams across the country. Before that, I was Federal Marketing Manager in Microsoft’s US Public Sector business and Marketing Director at Information Strategies – a software development company and Microsoft partner in Washington, DC.
I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a major in Art History and a minor in Business. I live in Newton, MA with my husband, Eric, and two sons, Alex (6) & Noah (3). I am a fitness enthusiast (recently added Cross Fit to my repertoire), I love to ski and will take any excuse to spend time outside!
