“Six Feet Up has been active in the Django community for many years, and I’m thrilled to advance our commitment to the community as DEFNA board members,” said Ganz. “I look forward to supporting DEFNA’s mission and expanding people’s knowledge of Django through continuing education and conferences.”

Six Feet Up has used Django to solve complex problems for clients across the globe and used the Python-based free and open source web framework to build LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up, a truly immersive virtual event platform that hosts many of today’s top tech conferences including DjangoCon Europe and Python Web Conference



Ganz, Vice President of Sales at Six Feet Up and DEFNA Director, is a highly organized and effective leader who strives to get the best out of people. A very personable and empathetic team player, she loves getting involved in community events. Ganz is stoked to contribute to advancing the DEFNA mission. When she’s not working, she likes to spend time hanging out with her family, working in the yard and volunteering at the community theater.



Myers, Vice President of Finance at Six Feet Up and DEFNA Treasurer, is a detailed, organized and competent leader who brings 24+ years of financial experience to the Board. She has worn many different hats during her career, giving her valuable skills to contribute to DEFNA and progressing their mission. When not working, you can find Myers watching her daughter playing soccer or her son swimming at the natatorium, spending time with her daughter at college, hanging out with friends, watching live music or planning that next getaway with her hubby.
