Serving as an Idera ACE 2016-2017


I’m very proud to announce that I have been selected to participate in the 2016-2017 Idera ACE program.  This means I’ll be able to participate and mentor others in the #sqlfamily more than ever before! My first event as an Idera ACE will be SQL Saturday, Lincoln NE. I’ll also be traveling to Washington, DC and presenting at their SQL Saturday thanks to Idera!

Part of my Idera ACE responsibility is to also blog, mentor and educate, fantastic! I am truly honored and so excited. This award has given me some new energy and I feel invigorated and ready to “get going!” Here’s to a great year!!
