Meet Adrienne Barnett

I got involved in PDXWIT about a year-and-a-half ago on my quest to get into IT. At one of the meet-ups, I became friends with Betsy Reed (former Business Development at Copious, current Director of Business Development at McClenahan Bruer) after she dropped some highly coveted cheese on the ground. I had come to PDXWIT to find a job, making a friend was an added bonus. About a year later, I landed a job at Copious as a Strategist/Producer - now Betsy was stuck with me as a co-worker and a friend. I love my job and I have PDXWIT to thank for it!  I continue attend the meet-ups because I enjoy hearing other people’s stories and learning more about the ever-changing world of IT. (I also attend the meet-ups for the cheese.)
