Jessica Deen
Senior Cloud Advocate, Microsoft

Jessica Deen is a senior cloud advocate for Microsoft focusing on Azure, containers, OSS, and, of course, DevOps. Previously, she spent over a decade as an IT consultant/systems administrator for various corporate and enterprise environments, catering to end users and IT professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area. Jessica holds two Microsoft certifications (MCP, MSTS), three CompTIA certifications (A+, Network+, and Security+), and four Apple certifications and is a former four-year Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Windows and Devices for IT. In 2013, she earned her FEMA certification from the US Department of Homeland Security, which recognizes her leadership and influence abilities during times of crisis and emergency; in 2015, she received her POST Level 2 certificate, which made her eligible to apply to serve as a reserve Level 2 Peace Officer in the state of California—the certification expired in 2018 when she chose to focus on her engineering and advocacy career with Microsoft for the time. When she’s not doing something geeky, you can find her doing something active, most likely running out of breath at her local CrossFit gym. She also enjoys biking (motorcycles and/or bicycles), shooting, eating, reading, and hanging with her six-year-old rescue pup.
