My day job and current projects
I currently work as a technical trainer at Microsoft. I prepare and deliver skill-based, outcome-driven training to Microsoft’s leading clients on the Azure platform. I previously worked as an Infrastructure Specialist for the Azure for Sports sales team, and as a technical specialist for IBM Cloud.
I’m incredibly passionate about increasing diversity and inclusion in the tech industry. I wrote Women of Color in Tech, for publisher John Wiley & Sons in 2020. WoCIT aims to inspire and inform women of color about the many tech careers out there, how to get them and how to stay in them, given the unique challenges that we face. I’m currently co-authoring my next book, Innovating for Diversity with NPower CEO Bertina Ceccarelli, and serve as host/producer of Wiley’s Diversity in Tech Webinar Series.
When possible, I volunteer my time to several organizations that seek to advance women and people of color into technical careers. I previously served as the chair of the Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Executive Council for CompTIA, where my council and I are tasked with helping CompTIA’s member organizations develop workforce development and DEI programs. I am also a coalition member for NPower’s Command Shift initiative, dedicated to bringing more women of color into the tech industry.
