I started programming in 2014 after attending General Assembly's Web Development Immersive. It was an unique and engaging learning experience that led me down a fulfilling career path. I love software development because it allows me to communicate via writing and solve problems creatively.
I'm interested in constantly evolving my skill set and giving back to the tech community. In the past five years, I have mentored seven software engineering interns from various internship programs (including NYC TTP, WiTNY). One of my early mentees went on to become a valuable software enigneer at Narrativ. I have volunteered as a coding bootcamp instructor for CodeNow.org, and I'm currently tutoring software fellows at The Knowledge House.
Issues I care about include conserving the environment, reforming higher education, advancing women/minorities in leadership and technology, and promoting a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
I've always been a cat person. I adopted my cat Jane Snow in May 2020 after a ten-year hiatus. I am hoping there will also be a dog in my future.
In my free time, I train in aerial arts and dance, listen to EDM, and watch TV shows on Hulu. I love traveling and exploring new places. I have done work remote trips in Berlin/Lisbon/Playa del Carmen (2015/2019/2020 Hacker Paradise), Barcelona (2017 Be Unsettled), and London (2018).
