Taking the next step in my career

Feb 14, 2013

In a little over a week, I’ll be starting my new position at SQL Sentry. I’m excited about this new position for so many different reasons. I get to work with a great group of people – some of them I’ve known for awhile and some that I have yet to meet. Having worked solo for so long, I’m excited to be a part of a team. The other huge benefit is that Kevin Kline (Twitter|Blog) is going to be my boss. It’s not very often that you get to work for someone you respect and whose company you enjoy.

The next step on my journey

The other exciting part of this position is that I’m going to get back to educating. Since I was very young, I’ve wanted to teach. I even had the chance to teach computer science at the community college here for a few years. The only reason that I left that was the huge difference in compensation between teaching IT and practicing it. I was talking with my hubby a few months ago about where I wanted to go career wise. There were a lot of options, but they all included making use of some of the soft skills that I have including the opportunity to teach. With SQL Sentry, I’ll have the opportunity to help ensure that our customers know how to use our tools to their advantage. For any of you that have worked with SQL Sentry tools, there is a lot going on and I know well how little free time DBAs have. My hope is to work with Kevin and this team to provide learning content to help our customers get up to speed as soon as possible.

I’m so pleased that I’m getting this opportunity to work in a position that lets me make use of my DBA skills and make use of my educational background. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to talk with some of you in the near future!
