Upcoming Atlanta WordPress Events – June/July

When I meet people I hear their stories and understand how their personalities, strengths and struggles, their passions, and values—each a piece of who they are, weave a wondrous tapestry that is a unique work of art. 

Pieces of my own story reawakened a passion, a gift, for helping others unveil and embrace their individual tapestry—a journey that led me to organize a WordPress Meetup  in 2011 … serve on the Atlanta WordCamp organizer team for 7 years … step up to being a WordPress Community Deputy … mentor other WordCamp organizers … and countless other volunteer roles in the local and national community. As some might say, “If you haven’t met Kathy, then you are on the fringe of the Atlanta WordPress community.”

Here’s what’s coming up locally.
Mark your calendars today!
