Kimberly Andrikaitis is a ScrumMaster, Agile Coach and self proclaimed "Agile Dork". She's bounced around IT for over 20+ years, starting off as a graphic designer which propelled her into testing, business analysis and product ownership, with a stint in podcasting. She's worked for large corporations (IBM, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse) and smaller "family run businesses" as well. The one thing in common is her passion towards injecting creativity, dissecting agile principles and promoting the Scrum values within her teams. Especially when it comes to distributed teams, which is now more common than ever before. Kimberly is obsessed with collaboration, continuous improvement, and experimentation; always contemplating creative and lively techniques for improving dialogue, strengthening team dynamics and making meetings more effective and energizing. She's an energetic optimist, the undercover investigator, the one who wants to discover what's under the hood. Kimberly is also CSM, ICP-ACC, SAFe® 4.0 RTE and SA certified.
