Professional shepherd for software. Currently I manage Client Platform Releases at Snapchat and coordinate daily with QA & engineers to ship high quality mobile apps at a rapid pace.
In my free time I try to keep improving my coding skills and I also work on a lot of side projects focused on building diversity in tech, with an emphasis on Open Source. My strengths are in connecting communities who need help to useful tools and people.
What motivates me is removing barriers so those who feel excluded or systematically shut out & pushed down can instead be explicitly invited and gain access to the benefits of working with technology.
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.
