software engineer, public speaker & community organizer

Hi! I'm passionate about making open-source more accessible and building community, online & offline. I enjoy teaching and inspiring other technologists through public speaking and writing. I've spoken at events organized by ReactJS Girls, CodeNewbie, Columbia University, The Flatiron School and more.

Currently, I am a Full Stack Engineer at Meetup and the organizer/founder of React Ladies, a community for women and non-binary ReactJS developers. I am based in the city that never sleeps (NYC).
