Ynema is a change agent. She considers herself a quiet influencer and a connector whose collaborative nature ensures success in introducing new concepts and services into the mainstream -- even in the most complex environments. She thrives on doing what seems to be impossible, and enjoys taking calculated risks in her personal life -- snowboarding, skiing, SCUBA diving or wake boarding when the season is right. She is certified in ITIL v3 best practices and is an active sponsor of the Austin Social Media Club.
