Profile Biography 
I am proud Tech Geek and Woman in Software Development. My interest in technology has taken me all over the country - from Los Angeles (where I grew up) to the opposite end of the country, Rochester, NY (where I attended the University of Rochester for undergrad). After graduating with a degree in Computer Science, I lived and worked in Colorado for a couple years before finally settling in the DC area.

I have played almost every technical role in software development - starting out my professional career with one of the largest software companies in the world, where I worked as an R&D Software Engineer on an Enterprise Content Management suite of products. After a few years, I left to join a social-networking/e-commerce startup as one of their early developers. When that company did not succeed, I became a co-founder of another startup where I had the role of CTO and built a software product that focused in healthcare/clinical-trials.

Today, I am a Tech Wizard for InfernoRed Technology and have happily been applying my knowledge and skills in Software Engineering and User Experience to craft many interesting and complex web and mobile applications. I have built applications for a variety of small and large private, non-profit, and government clients, including NASA JPL, Conservation International, Sesame Street, Sports Illustrated Play, and Discovery Communications.

The more I learn about technology and the people who use it, the more I enjoy my choice of being a woman in this field. I hope that my hard work and achievements will make a difference and bring more diversity and inclusion to the magical world of Software Development.
