Meet the Citrites
Mum, techie and multitasker…. I am a citrate and love to play with tech when I get time. I have worked in IT for over 20 years and am working at Citrix for almost three years. I started my IT career working for Microsoft with NT 4.0! I have worked with many different technologies and spent the last 15 years working on lots of different versions of Citrix technologies (from Citrix Metaframe 1.8 through to Citrix Cloud).

I am a Field Architect at Citrix and I love playing with all kinds of technologies. I’ve been working in IT since computer Jurassic era. WinFrame were roaming freely on Windows NT.
I am curious and eager to learn how things work.
My job is complex, and I love it. It is not just technology. It is how we use and configure it. It is listening and understand customer needs to translate them in a blueprint. It is sharing knowledge and experience with customers, partners, and colleagues.
