Liz van Dijk

Head of Technical Account Management, Percona

Liz joined Percona after spending 5 years as a performance consultant for a University research lab in Belgium. During this time, she spent most of her days measuring and trying to reduce the impact of virtualized environments all across the software stack.

Liz has spoken and led tutorials on DBA best practices multiple times at past Percona Live events.
