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 solve problems creatively.
I'm interested in improving my skill set and giving back to the tech community. In 2017 and 2018, I volunteered to teach HTML, CSS and Ruby on Rails at Code Now workshop for underrepresented high school students. I am also currently serving as a mentor at iMentor, a nonprofit that champions college education for low-income and first-generation students.
Issues I care about include conserving the environment, reforming higher education, advancing women/minorities in leadership and technology, and promoting a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
In my free time, I train in aerial arts, dance, listen to EDM, watch TV shows, and read. I love traveling and exploring new places. I have done work remote trips in Berlin (Hacker Paradise), Barcelona (Be Unsettled), London, and Lisbon (Hacker Paradise).
