My name is Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman and I’m the Consulting Member for the Technical Staff on the Strategic Customer Program for Enterprise Manager Group of Oracle. As an Oracle employee, I’m no longer an ACE Director, but strive to support the program as a mentor for those that are interested in the Ace Program. I’m very proud to be a member and one of only six women who are part of the Oak Table Network.
I have a long history of environment optimization tuning, automation and designing robust environments for longevity. Extensive experience in multi-terabyte Very Large Database, (VLDB) management, (OLAP/DSS). I consistently advocate logical tuning of code and design before hardware solutions. I’ve become known in recent years for my expertise in Enterprise Manager, AWR, (Automatic Workload Repository) Warehouse, OMC, (Oracle Management Cloud) and DBaaS, (Database as a Service) including hybrid management with complex cloud management. The technical knowledge required to support these features offers great customer engagements and opportunities to learn for those that attend my technical presentations, engage me in social media or read this blog, dbakevlar.com.
I live in Westminster, CO with my incredible husband, Tim and enjoy as my three children, Sam, Caitlyn and Joshua, successfully navigate their way to adulthood.
Emeritus board member for the Rocky Mountain Oracle User Group, (RMOUG), I’ve been asked to return to direct the Training Days conferences, the largest of Oracle regional user group conferences in the United States. I am heavily involved in their goal of integrating social media, physical meetups and membership that is so much a part of all user groups and conferences today. I am also focused on WIT, (Women in Technology) and early technical learning programs, as I feel that we’ll soon have a large number of STEM opportunities left unfilled in technology due to lacking technical education in schools. I am currently running the RMOUG Raspberry Pi and STEAM Special Interest Group and have lead a large number of Women in Technology events in the US and Europe. I am the owner and organizer of Girl Geek Dinners of Boulder and Denver, over 700 strong membership, which can be found on Meetup, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. We organize events for women who have a passion for technology, no matter if it’s part of their career, hobby or future! I am always open for any suggestions or ideas on how I can help Oracle and user groups be more beneficial to their membership, partners and participate in the larger community.
Books, Publications and Presentations
I’ve presented and/or keynote at many conferences and events, including Oracle Open World, KSCOPE, HotSos and Collaborate. I am the author of a number of technical books, write articles and present webinars through Redgate, ODTUG and Oracle. Presentation slides can be found on SlideShare. The ACE program is a phenomenal program for everyone who has a chance to be a part of it and available to mentor both men, women and those up and coming into the industry.

All tweets should be assumed part of the #OracleEmp hashtag as I am an employee of Oracle.
All database environments are unique and any recommended technical features should be tested thoroughly before implementing into a production database environment. My blog contains a lot of options and fixes that HAVE NOT been put through Oracle support or through development. They don’t have the time or the resources to work through what I’ve done. Please implement at your own risk.
