As the coordinator of the Newfangled production schedule, I schedule and monitor the progress of both long-term web development projects and short-term upgrades to existing sites. I am the Salesforce administrator for Newfangled, and I work with our project managers, developers, and clients to integrate our sites with Salesforce. I also manage the distribution for Mark's book, A Website that Works.
Born and raised in North Carolina, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BA in Linguistics and English. Outside of work, I enjoy playing my ukulele, hiking, and hanging out with my dog Woody.
