The New Panelist on the Block

January 15, 2019InfoSteph

Your girl has been busy!

On November 5th, I tweeted the following:

It was just a hope and dream of mine. I always wanted to speak at a conference and since being in the industry, I have had lots to contribute to the ongoing conversations. Jesse Nowlin, IT Director and founder/dreamer of tabGeeks, reached out to me a day later and asked if I wanted to be on their Security panel. I was elated and ecstatic. A phone call later, I was confirmed and now, I will be speaking at tabGeeks. I even have a pretty good graphic!

This is unreal…

This is the PERFECT event for me. After reading this excerpt from their site (and, for me personally, after a lengthy phone convo), you will see why tabGeeks is going to be THE con to attend this spring:

After being thoroughly fed up with the lack of learning and professional development opportunities for IT people like him, this IT Director envisioned a community he could relate to. He dreamed of regular meetups and conferences all over the world, a yearly geektastic cruise, and an active slack channel. Jesse would finally have a group of people he could relate to professionally, and attend a conference without being pitched to.


I am nervous beyond belief, but I am also honored and excited. I can’t wait to nerd out in Long Beach and talk security with some security nerds and security enthusiasts. Hopefully, I will see you there!

Thank you, again, to Jesse and Shani Nowlin for choosing me and making my dream come true. I hope I do not disappoint!
