Profile Biography 
Hello! My name is Erin and I'm a future astrophysicist. I've been involved with technology in some way nearly my entire life, and I've spent all of my 20s so far working in website and software testing. I returned to college after a long gap and am pursuing astrophysics and computer science with the goal of being an astronomical researcher and data scientist. In addition to my duties as a tester and tech support person, I am a planetarium presenter and a computer science tutor for my college-aged peers. In my spare time I volunteer with the Girl Scouts and my troop's newly established Lego League. I enjoy building websites and coding planetarium shows, and I love sharing all the ways programming can make our lives better and more enjoyable.
