“Swetha is an amazingly talented SharePoint Developer, Designer and Leader. As the Lead Developer for the Department of Defense Chief Information Officer, I am a stickler for following best practice approaches to automate business processes and implement custom designs in SharePoint. I have reviewed Swetha’s work on various projects and have found it to be top notch every time. She has the uncommon ability to architect, develop, design and integrate in the SharePoint environment. In addition to her broad and deep skill set, she has the heart of a servant/leader. She currently leads the largest Women’s SharePoint user group in the United States and is constantly mentoring, organizing, guiding and leading by example in technical as well as professional areas. She has excellent leadership and communication skills and is an outstanding team builder. A true champion and X-factor in any organization able to simplify and communicate difficult technical concepts while giving clear technical guidance to those charged with implementation.”

I have had the pleasure of working with Swetha in the SharePoint/Office 365 community for a while now. Her transformation in to a strong community leader has been wonderful to watch. She is driven, goal oriented, and has been fantastic as the President of WSPDC. She works to lead and promote this group while also starting a user group in Loudoun County to support the Office 365 users there. She has great technical skills, ambition, presentation presence, and leadership skills.

“Swetha helped the Office of Special Education setup their SharePoint site for use by hundreds of staff within the schools. While we encountered some technical anomalies during the setup process, Swetha always made herself available to help us troubleshoot and quickly find resolutions (both during and after normal business hours). Swetha’s energy and love for SharePoint is contagious and she ensured that we had a good grasp of Sharepoint and the technical possibilities for further departmental enhancement.”

“Swetha is a fantastic person. I sent her an e-mail on a Sunday morning and she responded back within an hour. I had difficulty assigning a new student to my OneNote notebook and she researched the problem with me for 45 minutes. She showed me resources that I might need for the future and how to help others in case the problem arose again. I appreciate her patience and her follow through with making sure I received all of the resources necessary to help me in my role as teacher. She is a great promoter of all things technological and a fantastic leader. What a great Problem Solver!”

“Swetha is the most knowledged and proficient software engineer that I have had the pleasure working with over the past year at Loudoun County Public Schools. Specifically, she has helped me develop my skills and capabilities with regards to building SharePoint Sites, and working with SharePoint Designer to understand the intricacies behind programming and modifying permissions for users and building content in general. To say that I am impressed with her skill set would be an understatement; to say that her enthusiasm and willingness to teach Microsoft SharePoint has been less than spectacular would be an absolute falsity. Please let me know if I can provide any additional anecdotes regarding any of the multiple occasions where Swetha has worked with me to help sharpen my skill set for the benefit of my teachers and students at Rock Ridge High School.”

“This past year the office I work for began to use Office 365 and SharePoint to support our work in the schools. My task was to build a site to support teams within our office. I had ideas on how I would like it to function and look, but many times found myself getting stuck. Swetha was always available to share her expertise and has supported me in in my efforts. Whenever I had a question Swetha would find an answer that was easy for me to understand and easy for me to implement. In addition, I am always looking to make improvements and incorporate new ways of sharing and displaying information on my site. Swetha listens to my ideas and provides guidance and encouragement. I greatly appreciate all the support that Swetha has provided and I look forward to all the great things we will be able to accomplish for our office.”

“I had a web based program that was seriously out of date. I asked for ideas to update the program, to include basic functions such as spell check as well as the ability to import email addresses. Swetha listened to my wish list also adding in ideas she had, to help make the program function in a much better fashion. The end result was awesome! The time saving functions Swetha added to the program are outstanding and have proven to be much more efficient. Once the program changes were in place, Swetha has provided excellent customer service to me and my department, to ensure we have no further issues. I look forward to working with Swetha again soon!!”
