Bio: Amber Roberts has been with Gavilon nearly 10 years and recently moved from the Legal group to IT. As the SharePoint and Information Governance resource, she’s passionate about document control and using SharePoint as a basis to increase efficiency throughout the company.

Amber leads the monthly Gavilon SharePoint User Group which has topics specific to Gavilon’s environment and its current priorities. She believes in training employees to become power users and loves when she “sees the light bulb go on” and users start to understand how powerful SharePoint can be when used properly.

Bio: I have been at LES for a little over 1 year. I have been in the IT/Technical field for around 8 years holding various job duties at companies like LES, Union Bank and Trust, and Automated Systems Inc.

SharePoint can provide the very basic task of storing documents, to incorporating a 3rd party suite like Nintex to expand the use and efficiency even more. The training that I help provide at my current position is very rewarding when you see the 'aha' or 'light bulb' moments during discussions with other employees.
