Kelley and I's short working relations hip has so far been highlighted by her sharp wit, her passion for Agile, and her enthusiasm for her craft. Kelley doesn't just preach/teach agile - but she believes in being agile. This was evident to our client as it only took 8 days from our initial conversation for them to be happily connected to a new opportunity! Kelley will begin as a consultant for us soon and I have full confidence in her abilities as an agile coach and leader. I look forward to continuing to work forward with her into the future and would highly recommend her for any opportunities in the agile space!
