Cindy Gross started her SQL Server life as a DBA with a hospital and health plan company in 1993, and moved to Microsoft in 2000 where she has worked ever since. Her roles at Microsoft have included PSS Product Support Engineer, SQL Content Lead, Yukon Readiness Lead, and most recently Dedicated Support Engineer (DSE), all for SQL Server.
Cindy enjoys delivering training throughout the United States as well as in Europe and India, including presentations at SQL PASS. In 2008 she started the Boise SQL Server User Group, an affiliate of the SQLCommunity.org site (where she is a worldwide SQL Server Community Leader) to share SQL Server wisdom in the Idaho SQL Server community. Most recently she obtained the Microsoft Certified Master: SQL Server Qualification, which was a hard-fought prize. Over the years Cindy has learned from many wonderful friends and colleagues and they all deserve a word of thanks for contributing to her success. Cindy authored chapter 8.
