I am a freelance web developer and no-ego doer who believes in transparency, community/diversity, and self-improvement as core values.
I'm the Mentor Director for Coding & Cocktails, one of Kansas City Women in Technology's programs geared towards diversifying our tech community. I organize the mentors and helped defined our teaching ethos with the Mentor Playbook I created.
I like learning about different cultures, their foods, and their languages. I'm working on learning Korean and also got to spend a month in South Korea. 안녕! The last trip I took was to Spain and Portugal. I also practice yoga, mostly Ashtanga, and study Buddhism.
My skill set spans a wide range and includes systems engineering, web development, and client management.
