Experience

I'm a principal level software engineer, working mainly in the C# and JavaScript spaces. In my 10 years of professional experience, I've had the opportunity to guide application architectures, set standards for source code style and patterns, define CI/CD processes, build support for my initiatives among technical and non-technical stakeholders, provide technical leadership for teams, and be an individual mentor.

I've worked in companies at a variety of sizes ranging from Series A startups to Fortune 100. Likewise, I've worked in various industries, including financial services, utilities, commodities, automotive, and point-of-sale technology. And I've worked with a correspondingly wide array of technologies. For a detailed accounting of my work history, you're welcome to review my résumé or my LinkedIn profile.

In recent years, I've become very active in Women Who Code, particularly the Dallas/Fort Worth chapter. There, it's been my pleasure to have met many people who are both good friends and excellent technologists. I've also given multiple tech talks through that organization and become closely involved with the leadership of the chapter.
