Julie Ramsey – Progressive

My favorite scrum value is courage which supports my favorite quote, “Risk, learn, grow” from Progressive Insurance’s past Chairman of the Board, Peter B. Lewis.  I’m a Business Systems Analyst at Progressive Insurance and I’ve been working on scrum teams for the past three years, Scrum Master for the last one and a half of those.  I am currently a Certified Scrum Master and Certified Scrum Product Owner. I love being a Scrum Master and living in sunny Colorado. I’m a transplant from back east, now living in Colorado with my husband, four children, cat and dog.
