Joining the team
I’m (Lynette, aka esmerel) excited to be rejoining the world of people who get paid for working as a member of the TopNotchThemes team. Being a mom is awesome, and the benefits are pretty fantastic, but the salary is for the birds.
My first memory of Stephanie is from DrupalCon Boston, where she was writing “Drupal Rocks!” on beach balls that were a booth freebie from some other CMS at the trade show that we were sharing the convention center with. I’m pretty sure that my daughter still has one of those around somewhere.
I’ve been a member of the Drupal community since 2006, when I tagged along with my husband Earl to DrupalCon Brussels. Even though I wasn’t “doing Drupal” at the time, the community was incredibly welcoming and over the next year, I began to be assimilated.
I’ve spent some fifteen years doing software technical support for some large companies. Over the last few, I’ve spent most of my Drupal time doing two things: writing a significant portion of Drupal Building Blocks, and trimming the Views issue queue. When I wasn’t chasing the (2!) kids around, that is. I also head the Views Bug Squad and am the documentation maintainer for Views and Panels.
I’m looking forward to working even more with the community and the TopNotch team!
