I’m Deborah Beckett — a mom, wife, runner, code debugger, and user support specialist. I’ve been designing web sites for the last 15 years, and earned a BA in Journalism/Multimedia & Web Design from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After nine years of living in the Asheville region of western North Carolina, I’m a recent re-transplant back to Durham, NC.
I work on the Happiness Hiring team at Automattic, helping to find awesome people to work with us as Happiness Engineers supporting users of WordPress.com and other Automattic products. Prior to that I’d been employed as a Web Developer by eGarden.com, Elon University, and A-B Tech; and as a Systems Implementer and Software Quality Analyst by AcctVantage ERP.
I use this blog for testing issues and features on WordPress.com, especially related to viewing and publishing content from mobile devices. I mostly show off my kids, but sometimes I write an actual post.
