Michelle Julian, Project Manager and ScrumMaster
When the AJi Software team needs to huddle, Michelle Julian is right at the center. She is the Scrum Master facilitating the Agile development process for the team, and orchestrates the daily stand-up meetings for each customer project—keeping the developers on-track to meet their deadlines.
“I love meeting with each team every day to see what they’re doing, and where they’re at,” Michelle said. “That way, we can answer questions, fix impediments, and remove roadblocks before they become an issue.”
Michelle is a Certified Scrum Master with the Scrum Alliance. She specializes in web design and graphics, and has a Bachelor of Science Degree from DeVry University in Computer Information Systems.
“The most important thing to me is integrity,” Michelle said. “If you say you’re going to do a job, then make sure you can actually do it, and complete it in a timely manner.”
Before coming to work at AJi, Michelle designed web graphics and functionality for a direct mail company in Kansas City. Her favorite project so far at AJi? Facilitating software delivery for an academic collaboration tool.
In her spare time, Michelle runs a side business, Made from Scratch, which serves up custom cakes and cookies—and enjoys doing foodie adventure road trips with her husband and two children, Brandon, age 8, and Addison, age 5.
