Once a month we'll shine our virtual spotlight on one of the CA Service Management community's members. It's just a fun, easy way for us to get to know one another a little bit beyond our work-related interactions here on the site. This month, we're featuring Lindsay Estabrooks, Principal Consultant, IT-EDU Comsultants.
Location: Scottsdale AZ
Current Gig: Independent IT Service Management Consultant
