I’m It – Survival Techniques for the Lone DBA

Are you the only database person at your company? Are you both the DBA and the Developer? Being the only data professional in an environment can seem overwhelming, daunting, and darn near impossible sometimes. However, it can also be extremely rewarding and empowering.  This session will cover how you can keep your sanity, get stuff done, and still love your job. We’ll cover how I have survived and thrived being a Lone DBA for 15 years and how you can too.  When you finish this session, you’ll know what you can do to make your job easier, where to find help, and how to still be able to advance and enrich your career.

I am Monica Rathbun. I’m currently a Sr. Database Administrator\ BI Architect at Massimo Zanetti Beverage, USA in Virginia. I’ve been a Lone DBA for 15 years, working with all aspects of SQL Server and Oracle.  I am currently the co-leader for the Hampton Roads SQL Server User Group and can be found on Twitter daily as @SQLEspresso.
I am passionate about SQL Server and the #SQLFamily, doing anything I can to give back to such a wonderful community. As a new speaker at SQL Saturday’s and a new blogger I hope to earn my place as a valued member.  When I’m not busy with work, you will find me playing taxi to my two daughters back and forth to dance classes.
