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.

A friend of mine made a blog post about the lack of conferences in Kansas City.  Here is the post: http://www.codebucket.org/archive/2008/06/26/kansas-city-here-we-come.aspx.  If you don't know Lee Brandt you need to know him, even if he's not necessarily a full on SharePoint Nation Inductee he's a great developer.  He was one of my awesome teammates at Coders 4 Charity.  I would like to call him one of my friends in Kansas City.  He makes some good points.  I also ended up in a conversation with Jeff Julian a bit later and he also makes some good points.  If you want to hold a conference you need more user group attendees.  For our .Net User Group it looks like we are getting between 50 and 60 people.  Our Kansas City Office Geeks (SharePoint User Group), however is getting about 13 people so far at the last meeting.  I am hoping that the next meeting on Windows Workflow Foundation will have over 20 people.  We have 54 people signed up on our user group list.  We are not going to have a conference here if we are not going to be able to pull the numbers.  If you guys want a conference, then you need to start supporting your local user groups in Kansas City.  I love this community.  I love the people.  We just need more of you to come out and show up.  I know you are out there and I want to meet you and hear from you.  I would love to hear more feedback from Kansas City people on why you are not coming out.  Fill out the contact form.  E-mail me, Twitter me...I can't answer during work hours, but I will answer by the end of the night.  I hope to hear from you all.
