I am a people person at heart and this is how I started my Agile journey. Being part of the SUGSA community was such a huge stepping stone in getting me to where I am today. The friendships I have made and the support I was given by people in the SUGSA community still amazes me! I find my reason for being is helping others and I enjoy it everyday!

Charlotte (Charlie) Rawlinson

I’m a small-town girl, living in the big city with aspiring big city dreams. In 2018 I made the decision to switch career paths and moved over to working in the call centre as a Customer Service consultant/custodian. Within 2 years I was a senior/specialist in my role. During that time I discovered Scrum and I was smitten. My company was very supportive of the role transformation and helped me expand and grow. I still work for them but as a Scrum Master. I have been practicing Agile methodologies for over a year and it has been the most exciting year. Full of growth, friendships and learnings. I would not exchange it for the world.

I am a pragmatic Agilist and Facilitator with years of experience across different industries that individuals and teams can draw on to guide them in solving complex problems. My passion is to help organizations create a culture that enables individuals and teams to find purpose in the work they do in delivering business outcomes. Outside work, I enjoy exploring and discovering the hidden gems of the West Coast with my family. I am also an avid reader and a bit of a podcast junkie

Kirstin Stratton

Hello! I am Kirstin Stratton, a Scrum Master working with Software & Infrastructure teams. I have been a part of the community since my Agile journey started at the beginning of 2021. I have found my people in the SUGSA community and will forever be grateful that I get to connect and grow with like-minded individuals. On a more personal note, I enjoy getting my hands dirty in my little vegetable garden and recently discovered deep play on my stand-up paddle (SUP) board at Clifton!
