Before Turing, I pursued a degree in Journalism and Digital Media with the hopes of eventually becoming a tech journalist. While that's still a dream of mine, I fell into the Denver startup scene as a project manager at a mobile development shop and became hooked on the idea of becoming a developer and technical product manager. While I was a PM, I earned a ScrumMaster certification and worked with both in-house and remote development teams in completely different time zones.
My passions include encouraging more honest diversity for PoC and women in the tech industry, better biking culture in the US, craft coffee/cocktails/beer and playing video games.
