I began my programming career with a different focus than most. I have a passion for traveling the world, bridging the digital divide, advocating for environmental causes, and eating the best food the world has to offer. I strive to use my skills for the greater good, to improve the lives of others.
I began encouraging broader participation for women and minorities in STEM careers while at Florida State University. I was a leader in both the ACM-W and STARS Alliance organizations. I continued this work with Women in Cable Telecommunications. I served on the board as the inaugural Tech It Out Director and we created events such as Tech Camp 2.0, which exposed 125 attendees to the future of cable technology.
I still pursue this passion and serve as the VP of operations on the board of Kids on Computers, which opens computer labs in developing nations. This June we worked in Huajuapan de León and have many future trips planned. I also lead workshops through the Android Alliance, GirlDevelopIt, and TechGirlz.
I began my mobile career at Comcast Interactive Media (CIM). I helped build the XfinityTV Android & iOS applications from the ground up. While there, I founded the Philadelphia Android Alliance. I continued mobile applications work with local firms, such as Chariot Solutions. Now I run my own training and consulting business. I’m passionate about the Android ecosystem and wearables and how they could be used for humanitarian causes.
As a conference speaker and educator, I’ve traveled near and far to teach Android and discuss programming, technology trends, security, open source, and feminism.
