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. 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 as a tutor for software fellows at The Knowledge House.
Issues I care about include conserving the environment, reforming healthcare, advancing women/minorities in leadership and technology, and promoting a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
In my free time, I train in aerial arts and pole dance, listen to EDM, and watch TV shows on Hulu. I love traveling and exploring new places. I have worked remotely for 2-4 weeks in Berlin/Lisbon/Playa del Carmen (2015/2019/2020 Hacker Paradise), Barcelona (2017 Be Unsettled), and London (2018). Check out my New Zealand photo journal.
I currently live in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my partner (we have a friendly competition since he does infrastructure at Ro), our daughter Jade (born Oct 2021) and our cat Jane Snow (adopted May 2020).
