Shared Blog: Suzette Franck
Suzette Franck is one of the first, of many, individuals I met outside of the Vegas WordPress Community. At the time, she was the evangelist for a company called Media Temple. This was before GoDaddy acquired the company in recent years. She has worked for some awesome companies and I’m completely jealous. No joke.
Suzette Franck: WordCamp Awesome Person #1
Suzette Franck has been to more WordCamp events, than any other person I know. She has spoken at almost every single one of them. She’s extremely knowledgeable in the world of HTML & CSS. Her WordCamp Talks are always packed with new users and advanced developers who need to learn a thing or two about becoming better with CSS.
When I first started writing my Gravity Styles WordPress Plugin, Suzette Franck was the first person I contacted. I asked if she had any style tips for gravity forms. I received an email rom her containing the style sheet she uses for styling Gravity Forms on her personal site. She gave me permission to use her style in my plugin. I mean, does it get any better than that?
I share a story with Suzette Franck
One time, we both were speaking at WordCamp Albuquerque 2013. We both stayed at the some hotel and even though we did not share the same ride from the airport to our hotel, we both had the same story. The shuttle bus driver asked us if we were fans of Breaking Bad. The show filmed in Albuquerque. So it wasn’t that weird to ask. He then asked us if we wanted to see the house that one of the characters live in. It’s a real house they film in. He then informed us that he lived close to the house. A little creepy to say the least.
I cherish every memory I have with Suzette Franck, and I look forward to seeing her at more WordCamp Events.
