Profile Biography 
I discovered my love for coding in high school, when I realized I could write code to beat a video game. I had never heard of coding growing up and didn't have easy access to learn about it. I've worked with non-profits in the Kansas City area to provide computer science education opportunities and increase accessibility to students.

I'm a first-generation college graduate and I now work at TreviPay where I work on software that helps businesses grow faster.

I love to volunteer and have worked on several STEM initiatives over the last few years. I used to run a Girls Who Code Club that I co-founded in Lawrence, Kansas. I've enjoyed giving talks on technical topics and diversity/inclusivity. These days I'm mainly focused on work and side projects, as well as volunteering with animal rescues. Happy to help out however I can.
