My day job and current projects
I currently work as a technical specialist for a leading technology company. I help businesses and other organizations understand the benefits of creating cloud-native applications and modernizing legacy applications while guiding them through the complexities that can come up. Before this, I worked for many years in administrative/operational roles with various companies within the financial services industry.
I’ve published Women of Color in Tech, for Wiley. My hope for the book is that it will help inform women of color of the multitude of 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 in tech careers. Towards that end, I currently serve as a career mentor for both the Pathways in Technology Early College (P-Tech) High School Brooklyn, and as a volunteer workshop technical assistant for Black Girls Code.
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. That said, there will definitely not be a third marathon attempt.
When not working or studying, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful friends and family, playing video games, reading comic books and sleep 🙂
