In this Drupalize.Me interview, we talk with Jeanne Cost, project manager at Fuse IQ, based in Seattle, Washington. This interview is part of an ongoing series where we talk with a variety of people in the Drupal community about the work they do. Each interview focuses on a particular Drupal role and this interview with Jeanne focuses on the project manager role.
