Tell us how you became involved with PostgreSQL.
I was hired as Executive Assistant by PGX 4 years ago and haven't looked back!
What is your favorite thing about PostgreSQL?
I don't work with the software directly, but the enthusiasm of those who do is infectious. I love being able to travel to different Postgres conferences and see that energy being shared among the community.
What made you decide to become involved with PgDay San Francisco?
I live in the Bay Area, so I jumped at the chance of being able to be deeply involved in a local Postgres event.
What else would you like the world to know about you?
I love to participate in historical re-enactments/events and have a lot of closet space dedicated to costumes of various time periods. Who knows, maybe one of these days I'll show up to a conference in one …
