Behind every great author is a great editor. And behind our great new Sales and Marketing Pro software, is our great documentation team. Surrounding themselves with Thesauruses, Dictionaries, and other books with lots of words in them is just one of the ways to identify what their jobs are at the company.

When I asked our Director of Training & Documentation Teri Epperly to give a description about herself for the post this morning, she said, “I want to talk about my life in Hawaii — back when I was surfing, scuba diving, riding motorcycles, and living near the beach!” But that was then.

Well, it’s sort of then. She’s right this minute (February 23rd) sitting on a beach in Hawaii. But when she’s not visiting the hometown of her heart, she is living in “blue-jean” Eugene. She traded in her two wheels for a riding lawnmower, and indulges her passion for landscape gardening on a couple of acres out by the lake.

After knowing Teri for a while, you learn the following about her. She’s seemingly always in a good mood. Her bright laughter often sets off a series of answering chuckles throughout the office. No matter when you walk in her office, she has a smile on her face and a “how can I help you” attitude.

Teri has been with Palo Alto Software for 15 years. That’s a lot of history with our company, which is what, in part, makes her an indispensable member of the Palo Alto Software team.

Oh, and she makes a mean batch of flavored pretzels. Honestly, they’re really, really good.

Trust me on this.
