I love teaching people to code, and I am currently doing so as a Senior Developer Advocate at AWS. I have been employed in the tech industry since 2014, holding multiple software engineering positions at startups, and a Distinguished Faculty and Faculty Lead role at General Assembly's Software Engineering Immersive.I blog a lot about code and my life as a developer and also have a podcast with two other incredible women: Ladybug Podcast. We talk about the tech industry, our backgrounds, and go in depth on code-topics.When I'm not coding you can find me watching my favorite New England sports teams, taking runs with my dog Blair, or rock climbing.
