I'm a software and data person, writer, public speaker, and community organizer.

I moved to Chicago in 2014 to attend Dev Bootcamp (RIP). I work at ActiveCampaign as a data engineer.

One of my passions is providing career support and continuing education to fellow career changers. I co-organized the Chicago chapter of PyLadies from 2015 to 2017, and I help organize PyOhio, the Midwest's largest Python conference. I also write and speak about software development, women in tech, community building, and professional development.

If you would like me to speak at your event, reach out via email or Twitter.
