My name is Stephanie Gooch and I am a Senior DevOps Engineer at KPMG UK. I have been working here for 3.5 years in the CloudOps team. Over the years I have worked in a range of areas such as Project development and Consulting. Now I am working in the Enablement team for KPMG who are responsible for developing and managing the cloud strategy, governance, and best practices that the rest of the organisation can leverage to build products in the cloud. This team has given me the opportunity to focus on FinOps in a way no one has in our team. Looking at cost optimisation and visualisation to get more from our cloud bills. I am also focusing on the development of our teams commercial model.
Outside of work I am a competitive powerlifter and run a small home cake decorating business.
