I've spent my career working as a software consultant and developer with Atomic Object.
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.
On my current project, I collaborate with my client team's product expert and their designer to identify and simplify upcoming features based on non-technical designs. Once we've agreed on a feature set, I break features into stories for a team of eight developers. This includes coordinating with senior members of the organization, prioritizing features to limit scope, and consulting with my team's technical experts to strategize implementation.
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 students considering computer science as a major.
