I'm passionate about collaborating with designers, developers, and product experts to find the best solution and deliver an excellent user experience. My background as a consultant gives me extensive experience assessing tradeoffs when making product decisions. As a software generalist, I have worked with a variety of technologies.
As a tech lead, I have worked hard to level up other members of my team. In that capacity, I've guided technical direction for a team of junior developers, designed and facilitated a testing workshop for client developers, and provided feasibility analysis to product-focused team members.
I also have experience breaking down technical work for teams. This has included identifying and simplifying upcoming features based on non-technical designs, breaking features into stories for a team of developers, prioritizing features to limit scope, and consulting with my team's technical experts to strategize implementation.
In October 2022 I was a speaker at LeadDev San Francisco. My talk was about providing support to first-time tech leads.
During my first two and a half years with Atomic Object, I authored blog posts on a regular basis on Atomic Spin, Atomic's Blog. I was particularly proud to have one of my posts shared to the email subscribers of The Ember Times.
I also enjoy participating in events that introduce people to technology. I have spoken on panels about being a woman in tech, co-hosted workshops on Git for college students, coached middle school students during learn-to-code workshops, and offered one-on-one advice to college students considering computer science as a major.
