Hey @sydney ! I see it says what aspirants are mapped to you, but I don’t see myself on there. Is that ok? Btw, I’m Abbie from South Georgia and working with Macmilllan Learning as a digital marketing specialist. Hoping to pass this certification to upskill my knowledge of marketo to help my team build better campaigns and understand more about reporting on the analytics within the software!

Hi Abbie! Nice to meet you! I messaged Jon asking about the mismatch between the email sent and those who are tagged in the thread. My guess is they just missed some folks in the thread so please join us!
