Meet Our Team (post 2 of 3)

Our first 'meet the team' post was a big hit, or maybe it was just Ernie's Instagram account :)

Read on to learn more about the team members in Extension Technology. Introducing .... Patrice, Terri, and Libby!

Patrice Johnson, business analyst / registration What do you like best about Extension and/or Ext Tech? The people I work with! And the programs!
What’s a favorite project you’ve worked on?  Getting registration up and running back in the day. It was a brand new project and we started from scratch. I like feeling that I contributed to an important and successful service.
If you had to eat one thing for every meal going forward, what would you eat?  Pizza or tacos (as long as I could vary the ingredients on/in them). Or popovers filled with creme fraiche, cured salmon, and caviar.


What do you like to do outside work? Write, cook, and teach (I cook and teach to support my writing habit.). I also have a wicked TV viewing habit and book collection.
What’s something most…

This weeks blog post is about a new training resource for G Suite. It is a Chrome extension called G Suite Training that gives you in-app training so you don’t need to leave the application to learn how to do something. The extension adds a Training menu to Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Drive, Forms, Sheets, Slides, Sites, Groups, Google+.

  2. Open the G Suite Training extension
  3. Click Add to Chrome. A training menu appears at the top of the screen
