Their MailChimp plugin was selected by MailChimp as one of their featured integrations, has been translated into a half dozen languages and is used customers around the world. He also heads a WordPress-based SaaS membership platform that serves 100,000+ users in North America. 

In his off time he tries to teach his two-year-old son how to code in hopes of handing over the reins and retiring early.

Jen Miller

Jen Miller believes in the value and power of the written word in sharing truth and story, in life and in business. Combining her journalism background with a passion for customer service and marketing, Jen built NeedSomeoneToBlog.com, a blogging service focused on delivering highly-targeted, local search engine optimized blogging and page content primarily for real estate clients. As the business grew, Jen discovered areas that could further develop authority, garner trust, and build engagement for her clients online. Her agency NeedSomeoneTo.com combines these services to share engaging messages of community and industry knowledge with their clients and followers. Jen also hosts a weekly podcast, Be Seen Blogging, delivering website content tips in under 10 minutes.
Jen Miller believes in the WordPress Community which is why she founded WomenWhoWP.org, a nonprofit dedicated to encouraging women in their WordPress journey. She also founded a specialty Meetup to accomplish the same goal.

Bridget Willard

Bridget Willard started her career with office work, earned a teaching degree, but returned to the office where she carved out a career in social media and marketing and ended up at a WordPress Plugin Development Shop.

Currently, she is the Marketing Manager for WordImpress whose flagship plugin is GiveWP.com — an online donation plugin, co-host of WPblab, and co-organizer of Women Who WP meetup.

She blogs about social media and, of course, WordPress on her site at bridgetwillard.com

Stephen Harvey

Stephen Harvey runs Harvester Solutions where he helps with all aspects of social media for his clients. And, of course, that involves a lot of WordPress.

Developing digital strategies to produce relevant, engaging, successful online campaigns that get results. Showing a business how their website, social media, and “in real life” outreach can all work together to maximize desired results is what I do.

Amber Hewitt

Amber Hewitt is a graphic designer and front-end web developer at her company, Graphicgoo, where she has created websites for a wide variety of clients for over 15 years. With a strong background in design (graphic design degree from Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design), she has developed a passion for good imagery and typography in print and on the web.

Renee Johnson

Renee Johnson has performed in various administrative roles for most of her working career. However, her affinity for things “web” and “WordPress” sparked an almost innate passion and curiosity for web development/design, administration, and support.
Whether working with individuals, businesses, or institutions she endeavors to bring her down-to-earth insight and skill to help achieve their internet goals. She is a strong believer in accessibility and ease for the end-user, which is why she enjoys the advances and community surrounding WordPress!

Roy Sivan

I have been using WordPress since the early days. Nowadays I’m a senior software developer that specializes in WordPress & front end tech at The Walt Disney Company. I love seeing how far I can take development and think outside of the box to build new and crazy things, or use combine bleeding edge tech with WordPress. I’m also socially awkward, but apparently people say hi to me all the time anyway.

Thomas Patrick Levy

Thomas Patrick Levy has more chest hair than you, weightlifts competitively but isn’t super good at it, and leads the development of the WordPress plugin LifterLMS.
