I'm a software engineer and developer advocate at DEV. Before that, I was a lead instructor at General Assembly teaching their Web Development Immersive for both campus and enterprise programs. I currently teach their Python part time class. Before teaching, I was a software engineer at a startup. I blog a lot about code and my life as a developer. My blog posts have had over 900k reads and have been featured on DEV's top 7, the top spot on HackerNews, FreeCodeCamp, and in JSWeekly. I'm also a director for Women Who Code DC, a co-founder of the Art Code Collective, and the DC Chapter Lead for Vue Vixens. When I'm not coding you can find me watching my favorite New England sports teams, taking runs around Capitol Hill with my dog Blair, or rock climbing.
