Speaker: Wendy Closson

Technologist Coach
Wendy Closson has over a decade of experience immersed in development and championing agile practices. After surviving a rare and highly aggressive cancer, she traded her keyboard for a yoga mat and set out to find health. Through her travels, she gathered a unique tool set to overcome overwhelm, create clear communication, and increase business influence. Fusing her expertise together, Wendy coaches technology leaders to manage effectively, respond reasonably, and navigate the choppy waters of business. She is a certified Naam Yoga teacher with over 1000 hours of training in holistic methodologies such as meditation, spiritual counseling, and non-violent communication. In addition, she was groomed in executive coaching by Kelley Black, founder of Balancing the Executive Life, and studies privately with Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, founder of Naam Yoga. She lives on Long Island with her husband and two children.
