Cloud / Security Architect and Microsoft Regional Director in San Diego

Read my blog

I am originally from Toronto, Canada - but have lived in San Diego since 1992 where I took my first programming job. Since then I have been fortunate to experience many opportunities in technology as a programmer, manager, executive, consultant, teacher, writer, book author, public speaker and entrepreneur. Turns out there are a vast number of opportunities in the technology space - and somehow I did not get the memo that you don't have to do them all!

I have dabbled in many areas of technology but my deep expertise lies in designing and implementing scalable cloud solutions, microservices (docker and service fabric), identity and access management, security and compliance, and C-Suite mentoring. I put things in the cloud before it was called the cloud and now spend time helping customers reach success in all things technology. I also have a passion for helping new businesses get off the ground as what I call a "Startup Architect".

My company is Solliance - a unique consulting firm that assembles the "dream team" of hand-picked deep technical experts balanced with a trusted implementation team to help customers solve problems, scale their operations and deliver value. We are based in San Diego but our partners are worldwide.

While Solliance keeps me very busy, I still spend quite a bit of time speaking internationally, delivering workshops and writing technical content. A big part of my involvement in the technical community also includes my role as a Microsoft Regional Director since 2003. I have also been awarded Azure MVP and Azure Elite status.

To say that I keep busy is a gross understatement, but my husband and son help me keep it real, and balanced.
