We're back from our winter hiatus with a special episode of the podcast. (I know, I know, I call a lot of them special. But I really mean it this time!)
I asked my good friend Kelli Smith, one of my favorite operations pros and Opsy's very first member (!), to interview me.
We talk about all things Opsy, my role as General Manager at Tech Ladies, and how I went from art student to web developer to operations in the first place.
You can listen on Opsy.work or wherever you get your podcasts. 💜
