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

I attended Dev Bootcamp (RIP) in 2014 and work at as a software engineer in Chicago.

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, marginalized genders in tech, community building, and professional development.

If you would like me to speak at your event, please look over my speaker info to make sure we're on the same page. The best ways to reach out to me are email and Twitter.
