About Kathleen

I’m passionate about wellbeing, becoming agile and learning. I love plants, books and writing. I support people working together to fix problems themselves and keep improving.

I taught myself how to write HTML as a teen in the 90s. And I’m still excited about digital. I learned how to cook at a 100% volunteer-run, vegan co-operative cafe. And I still love cooking. I’ve always loved writing and that takes many forms now. I sporadically share recipes for my recipe book Eating Without Spoons. More often, I write about Scrum Mastery and wellbeing. Sometimes I write poetry.

I love to inspire and motivate teams of enthusiastic individuals. With more than 10 years of digital knowledge and experience, as well as 5 years of facilitation and consensus building, I bring tonnes of enthusiasm too.

Sustainable working environments

Not-for-profit work and non-hierarchical structures strongly resonate with my values, but there are other exceptional places that break the mould too. I have digital experience in a variety of organisations, from small to large, charities to corporations, employment to freelancing and digital to analogue. I strive towards creating and nurturing an environment of trust, openness and energy.

I’m obsessed with agile (in a healthy way!) and regularly go to agile events. Check my calendar to see what I plan to attend.

Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, pilates and delicious vegan food. Playing tabletop games is fun too, especially co-operative ones where everyone wins (or loses!) together. I’m a prolific diarist and have been for as long as I can remember.
