[Meet the Team] Our non-software developers

← Back

In order for Xtern to create software, we need developers. However, there are also folks who support software development, and they are critical to its success. 

Meet Sue-Ellen


Sue-Ellen is our Project Manager, which means she has the difficult job of “herding all the cats.” She is responsible for interfacing between developers and clients and ensuring all projects are on time and on budget. She has a keen eye for details and also ensures accuracy and quality of projects. 

Sue-Ellen is also mom to our Office Manager, Head of Security, and Chief Sunbather, Squirrelly the dog :) Squirrelly works in the office every day and you can read more about her here. Sue-Ellen has worked at Xtern for six years and is involved in a number of community organizations, such as Greensboro Urban Ministry. 

Meet Glenn


Glenn is our System Administrator and has been with Xtern for 13 years. He is responsible for ensuring all servers, hardware, and systems are functioning correctly. He also oversees a variety of other office functions, as well.

Glenn grew up in the area and attended local schools within the Guilford County Public School system. Fun fact: he and our founder, Keir, attended high school together! When Glenn is not working, he enjoys restoring cars and DIY custom fabrication. 

Meet Emily


Emily is our Communications Director and she oversees external and internal communications, marketing, public relations, employee engagement, corporate social responsibility, and strategic partnerships. Emily has been with Xtern for 1.5 years and comes with a background in startups. 

When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two small kids, playing tennis, and being involved in a variety of local and civic organizations, including the City of Greensboro Parks & Recreation Commision.
