She started as a design intern in Los Angeles, and transitioned to web development through the skills gained in her undergrad. After fours years in L.A, she packed her bags for the Bay Area and transitioned to a fully focused development career starting as a junior developer at LinkedIn. She is now a Software Engineer Manager with 14 reports in the data engineering organization with the responsibility of bringing the UI of data products to life.
