Nearly two years ago, I began a new phase in my career when I stepped into the world of consulting. I’d done some consulting-type work through my previous job, which prepared me somewhat for the challenges ahead. But nothing fully prepares you for the ups and downs, excitement and stress of what a full-time database consulting role will bring. It’s a true learning experience, both professionally and personally.
Today, I’m excited to announce that I’m continuing on my professional journey by joining the team at Fortified Data. Fortified Data offers professional database consulting services for SQL Server, Oracle and other database systems. I’m looking forward to facing new challenges, working with a team of top-notch data professionals, and continuing to learn and grow.
Wherein I navel-gaze a bit
I’ve been very fortunate in my career. I’ve been blessed with exceptional mentors like Erin Stellato and Allen White, fantastic colleagues like Kendal Van Dyke, David Maxwell, and Michael Fal, and too many stellar peers to name. No one develops a successful career in a vacuum. The network we build around us plays such an important role in our growth and development. And I am so, so thankful for mine.
Surround yourself with good people, do good work, and make it happen.
