I'm Jess! I'm an engineer-turned-technical writer! I'm disabled, queer, neurodivergent, and an oddity enthusiast. My terrible cat daughter is Sudo, and she joins every meeting whether I want her to or not.

Pre-February 2020, I spoke at conference talks and meetups in person! During this ongoing global pandemic, I've reduced my speaking engagements to virtual-only.

Pronouns: I use she/her or they/them interchangeably! Confused? Check this out!

Special interests:
  • Quantum computing
  • Autistic/neurodivergent communication
  • Endometriosis/immunology
  • Crochet
  • Digital art
