"Growing up, I never envisioned myself in tech. From the outside, it didn't seem to be a place where good design, or women, thrived.

I volunteer and mentor in the design & tech community in hopes of changing that mindset for women.

There is immense opportunity and impact in tech in a way that far exceeds any other job.

Imagining a world with more female founders, executives and leaders, is why I volunteer."

Your excellence drives our success!
