Karen Jex

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Karen Jex: I’m originally from the North West of England and I lived in various different parts of the country before settling in the South East, commuting to London from Essex for the first few years of my working life as a DBA. I’ve spent my whole career working with databases, and I’m currently a Solutions Architect with Crunchy Data. My husband and I moved to a small village in the French Alps 17+ years ago because of our love of mountain biking (Essex isn’t exactly well-known for its mountains). Our two kids, who are now teenagers, were both born here and say they feel more French than British. The eldest is also a mountain biker and is, of course, much better at it than we are!
