I have been in the technology field for 20 years (starting in 1999), entering the field as an electronic technician in the US Navy. I spent 13 years in the electronics field until I decided to go back to school and get my BS in Comp Sci. Shortly after receiving my degree I started working at JP Morgan as an Associate Software Engineer. I work full time with my firm while finishing my MS in Comp Sci and taking care of my teenage son. I also am an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community within JP Morgan and am the PRIDE BRG leader in Jersey City, while helping to recruit more queer individuals to the firm.
Diverse representation is a priority for us. We're proud to say that our Summit speakers are 80% queer women, 50% women of color, 25% Black & Latinx, and 15% transgender and gender nonconforming.
