Hi, I'm Monica! I'm a software engineer who is passionate about making open-source more accessible, creating technology to elevate people, and community building. You can often find me teaching web development, contributing to open-source projects like GatsbyJS, or tending to React Ladies, a community I founded for women and non-binary React developers.
