A quirky but true weekend warrior, you can find me rock climbing somewhere on the west coast (mostly in Joshua Tree) or camping out in my car. During the week, however, I am a software engineer at AT&T DIRECTV and a dedicated mentor of young, funky, and fresh programmers to be. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a degree in Computer Science where I formed SheCodes, a female friendly community of killer coders. I’m passionate about learning and empowering women in the male-dominated communities i belong to… which inspired me to begin Sisterly with some of my favorite gals. Outside of programming and climbing, I am, an amateur musician, lover of conspiracy theories, and a fierce advocate of awful jokes.
Texas born and raised, I graduated from UT Austin with a Computer Science degree in tow and headed west. Now a full-time LA transplant, I’m honing my programming skills as an iOS Developer at AT&T DIRECTV while picking up some new ones along the way. An expert dabbler of pastime ventures, I’m constantly adding to my repertoire-- lately political activism and student mentorship. I’m proud to be a leader of the International Rescue Committee’s GenR LA chapter, contributing to important fundraising work and other local efforts to help refugees here in the US and abroad. You can catch me shreddin' in Mammoth, bouldering at the local crag, or hitting a comedy show with a good Moscow mule within arm’s reach.
A Californian at heart, I moved to New York for college at Fordham University and haven’t looked back. I studied Philosophy and Psychology with an interest in cognitive neuroscience and bioethics. During the week, you can find me at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC researching cancer outcomes. I’ll be starting graduate school in the city to study Sociomedical Sciences and Epidemiology. Nerdy, right? But the stereotypes don’t stop there. You’ll usually catch me in transit nose deep in one of my books. During my free time I try to do socially acceptable activities, like jogging these crazy streets, hot yoga-ing, and devouring $1 oysters with a little too much red wine.
