Before joining Microsoft, Jennelle Crothers spent 15 years as a Systems Administrator "jack of all trades" overseeing Windows domains, Exchange Server, desktops and other IT infrastructure systems where she struck fear into the hearts of end-users with complex password policies and email retention tags. As a Technology Evangelist for IT Professionals, she speaks to members of the IT community about what's new and cool with Microsoft technologies.
Jennelle is a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) Enterprise Administrator for Windows 7 and Server 2008, an Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) for Server 2003 and Messaging and an MCSA for Windows 8. She was awarded her 4th MVP Award in January 2013.
She is also a long-time member and organizer of Pacific IT Professionals, as SF Bay Area community for other folks whose job it is to deploy, maintain, upgrade, support or troubleshoot Windows servers or workstations and other Microsoft products.
When not reading something related to technology, Jennelle helps raise puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind and enjoys reading dystopian novels. One of these days, she'll finish that quilt she started in 2011. Follow her on Twitter @jkc137 or visit her personal blog at www.techbunny.com.
