I’m a web designer/developer, speaker, teacher and writer located in Chicago, and the Director of Open Source Curriculum at online training course provider Pluralsight.
In 2014, I founded Code and Cupcakes Chicago, a series of mother/daughter beginner coding events and currently lead workshops on a regular basis.
In 2011, I founded the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Girl Develop It, a group that provides introductory coding classes aimed at women, and have been involved with GDI as an instructor and advisor since.
I speak widely about topics related to design, development and diversity in the technology field, and focus on finding new ways to make both technology and technology education accessible to everyone.
I have a kid I like a lot. I also like good films, writing on paper and hair dye.
