My day job and current projects
I currently work as a cloud infrastructure specialist at Microsoft. I help my clients and other organizations understand the benefits (and pitfalls) of moving and migrating their operations to the cloud. Before this, I worked for many years in administrative and operational roles with various companies within the financial services industry.
I wrote and released Women of Color in Tech, for Wiley in 2020, which aims to inform women of color of the many tech careers out there (not just coding), how to get them and how to stay in them, given the unique challenges that we face. (info here).
I’m incredibly passionate about increasing diversity and inclusion in the tech industry and volunteer my time to help get women and people of color into tech careers. Towards that end, I currently serve on the Executive Council for CompTIA’s Attracting Tech Talent and Diversity and perform a variety of volunteer opportunities for various non-profit organizations. I was recently tapped as host and producer for Wiley’s Diversity in Tech webinar series, set to launch in May 2021.
I ran both the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the TCS New York City Marathon in 2011 and 2016, respectively, for brain tumor charities. Both were in honor of my wonderful mom. There will definitely not be a third marathon attempt.
When not working or performing volunteer work, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful friends and family, playing video games (I love the Final Fantasy series), reading comic books and sleep 🙂
