Danka first came to the US as a refugee over 20 years ago with nothing more than $200, and a desire to make a better life than the one she had to leave behind. It was through this desire, she attended as many classes as she could at her job. One of those classes was a class on Scrum. It was 5 years ago and she jumped at the chance to attend. That class was a real eye-opener, and was the beginning of her Agile and Project Management journey. After that class she became the first Scrum Master in the Fargo office of her company and led her team to become higher-performing. She was also a huge inspiration for her colleagues to learn more about Agile and Scrum. She even organized and led PMI-PMP and PMI-ACP exam prep sessions at work. Danka is a true servant leader who believes in greatness and helping others become the best they can. She is a highly skilled Scrum Master and Project Manager who has several certifications, including: Project Management Professional (PMI-PMP), Certified Scrum Master (CSM), Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP), and Agile Certified Coach (IC-ACC). She is active in the Agile and Project Management community in the Fargo, ND area where Agile is still in its infancy. As part of the community, she continues to lead, encourage, and help others better understand Agile.
