About Me

I am Monica Rathbun. I’m Consultant for Denny Cherry and Associates Consulting living in Virginia and a Microsoft MVP for Data Platform. I was a Lone DBA for 16 years, working with all aspects of SQL Server and Oracle. I am now a consultant doing my best to help others. I travel speaking at SQLSaturdays helping other Lone DBAs with techniques on how one can do the jobs of many. I am the Leader of the Hampton Roads SQL Server User Group and a Mid‐Atlantic Pass Regional Mentor. I am honored to be 2016 Idera ACE, 2017 Idera Superstar and Sentry One PAC member.

I am passionate about SQL Server and the #SQLFamily, doing anything I can to give back to such a wonderful community. You can always find me on Twitter (@sqlespresso) handing out helpful tips and tricks to my followers.
