When Véronique joined the Wikimedia Foundation, she joined an organisation that was very much smaller and very much in the process of improving its act. As a certified public accountant, with a B.A. in Economics she was able to improve the financial processes and return with financial plannings and statements like clockwork.
Now that she is leaving in June, our organisation is very much in a different shape. It has grown from a nickel and dime shop into an organisation that turns nickels and dimes into a globally federated multi-million organisation. This has been very much a team and community effort but it would never have happened without the firm foundation of its administration.
