About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

Happy Birthday SharePoint Saturday!
It was one year ago that SharePoint Saturday kicked off in Virginia Beach. Michael Lotter, Susan Lennon, and Kevin Israel thanks for creating one of the most successful events around the world. What started out as one or two events has multiplied into over a dozen events and then some. Thank you so much (especially Michael and Susan) for all that you have given to the rest of us. I wouldn't know most of you guys out there without them. It's been an awesome year. Keep up the good work ......

More SharePoint Saturday Thoughts
So I think I picked something up this weekend. Not sure what, but I'm not feeling so great. You know me I'm running at 50 mph and when I get sick I have to stop and pause. Sometimes it's great, but other times not so much. Anyway, so a little more on the meeting with Joel, so there was a speaker dinner Friday night. I left my coat by my chair and went to the bathroom. When I came back Joel was sitting next to my chair. It was apparent who it was and I kind of just sat there stunned. Honestly, this ......

Reflecting on 2008...
It's weird it's 2009...If I look back to when I was 10 all I wanted to do was get to 18, so I could leave my parents house. On December 31st, 2000 things were so very different. I was 17 years old about to turn 18 a couple months later. I went to my grandmother's apartment at the assisted living facility a week before and she was complaining of a cold or the flu. This day was the day that she would end up in the hospital. I had this gut feeling that we wouldn't see her again outside of the hospital. ......

New York I Love You/I Hate You...
New York City was always this fantasy far away that I couldn't touch. I'm not sure it's really New York, but a place that was outside of St. Louis. A place that was outside this whole midwestern bubble I lived in when I was a kid. All I had was school and baseball, because well everything else wasn't so great when I until after I turned 18. When I was 18 I had this really great summer and it felt like everything was changing. It was the beginning of my life. I had no idea what that summer meant, ......

More Changes...
Stuff has changed drastically for me in the past two to three years. I moved over 1000 miles from Saint Louis. I go outside and I get up in front of crowds with less issues. Now I'm changing jobs again. I'm not really sure what to say here. I was obviously unhappy and I needed to do something different. So quit two days ago and I guess it worked out that I end with B&R this Friday, then head to TEC and SPS Huntsville and a week from this Monday I start my new job at Gig Werks. I'm not sure what ......

Strange Happenings
There are weeks we go about our life thinking nothing is going to change nothing will happen. Then there are other weeks a billion things happen at once. Friday started off very weird for me. I flew into Atlanta and I met some cool people for another SharePoint event. I had some good conversations. Saturday then hit me and my virtual machine bombed in my presentation after the auto updater ran. I was writing code on the board and describing everything in notepad. I would say as presentations go it ......

New York Area Community Stuff
I’ve been running around trying to find my place in the community not quite situated yet. This past Monday I attended a community social event where all the community leaders in the area got together and discussed upcoming plans for the year. It was a lot of fun and surprisingly interesting. I thought there would be a lot more people in attendance of this event. I always assumed this area had so many more people. That I would be this tiny itty bitty fish in a very large pond. It didn’t really feel ......

Yep...Not feeling so good...
I've been MIA due to a bladder infection and stomach flu and will most likely not be writing much. The muscle relaxers help a ton, so that I can move on occassion and sleep for a few hours...While you guys are waiting for new posts check out something I found that I created ages ago that still exists: http://members.aol.com/jade...
