I am an Atlanta native, and I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a BS in Computational Media, which is a cross-disciplinary major that focuses both on the aesthetic design and narrative aspect of technology as well as the more technical, software development side. I did not always know I would be a software developer—I started out in Georgia Tech’s little known Liberal Arts College, and I only (grudgingly) took my first computer science class because it is a graduation requirement for every GT student. I was as surprised as anyone to find out I loved the class! Currently, I work as a software developer at CNN, where I primarily do web development in my day-to-day work. I enjoy front-end development, experimental media, interactive design, and attending programs and events that empower women in tech. When I’m not thinking about computers, I also enjoy going outside and being in the sunlight, exploring Atlanta, and all types of travel.
Let’s break down the barriers for women in tech, one line of code at a time. Take part in strengthening the female programming community with a night of coding & empowerment.
