Speaker Bio 

Kerry Bosworth, Senior Partner Technical Lead at Microsoft

Kerry graduated with a Computer Science degree and started her career at IBM. There she built and managed super computers running complex workloads, like financial forecasting and weather modeling. After years of working hands-on with large systems, she moved to Seattle and works for Microsoft. She now helps customers move workloads to the Microsoft 365 cloud. A skill that stands the test of time is problem-solving. There is never a lack of complex problems to solve no matter where you go.
