Director of Administration
Administration is a field of diverse responsibilities; it can range from Human Resources to accounting to customer support to property management. Each one of these is crucial to an atmosphere where software craftsman can practice their trade. Maintaining that environment requires an individual with Susan's diverse experience to handle the unique issues that pop up from day to day. As Director of Administration, Susan sees these challenges as learning opportunities for both her and 8th Light. There is always more to learn, and room to improve.
Susan began her career as an Executive Assistant for Robert Martin at Object Mentor, Inc. in 1997. Since her move to 8th Light she has become an indispensable member of the team and has assisted with the following conferences:
- eXtreme Programming 2000
