Hi! I’m Kendra Little.

I love public speaking

SQL PASS Summit 2013

I specialize in Microsoft SQL Server performance tuning.

I love the challenge of identifying the bottleneck in a workload and then zooming in to figure out the exact changes to fix the issue, whether it’s rewriting TSQL, tuning indexes, modifying hardware, or changing application architecture.

I’m lucky to work in a field that I find fascinating, and I also love public speaking. Learning to teach others has taught me more than I ever imagined.

I live in Portland, Oregon. I love it here.

Jeremiah Peschka is my main squeeze. We live with two authoritarian cats, one derpy dog, and the dog’s filthy toy stuffed pony.

Like a good Northwesterner, I’m crazy for bicycles, travel, food carts, hiking, and trips to the Oregon Coast.

I hate camping, but kinda want to rent a yurt someday.
