Gretchen (Opferkew) Mann
Gretchen has an accidental IT career having fully intended to continue a career in the non-profit world after a year in Africa. But after a decade of schooling and working she discovered that she had a great IT career and was already helping many people to make the world a better place.
When people ask Gretchen how to become an MVP, she encourages them to be their best authentic self, rather than an imitation of someone else. For example, since Gretchen is more reflective as opposed to outspoken, she writes contemplative articles rather than sitting on panels where she needs to speak off the cuff.
