"I'm realizing from a few of my most recent photos that I need to take my laptop outside to work more often and catch some rays. I'm pale."

"I seriously have the most amazing husband in the world. Hands down."

"Best staff retreat ever!"

I’m a full-stack web developer and Chief Technology Officer at

I have a passion for all things technical and creative and find inspiration in the everyday things around me.  I am in love functional design and enjoy weaving different disciplines of style, art, and technology into my projects. I have over 15 years of development experience dating back to when animated gifs, tables, and Geocities were still cool. (It’s true!)

My specialties include working with early and mid-stage startups and building communities from the ground up. I try to involve myself in projects and businesses that have a positive impact on the world whenever possible.

I have spent over the last three years working contractually as a web developer and consultant to  In November of 2015, I formally joined the team as Chief Technology Officer.

I am always searching for new and inventive side project ideas and try to commit to as many helpful and positive projects as my busy schedule allows.  I have a particular interest in bringing more women into IT, especially where it concerns web development, programming and other STEM-related activities. I am open to speaking engagement opportunities on a variety of web development topics and would be glad to visit a classroom or conference to share some of my industry experience.


When I’m not on the job, I enjoy playing classical piano, being a vocalist (R&B/Jazz), playing video games, practicing Tae Kwon Do, as well as spending as much time as possible with my husband, son, my pomeranian, Dante, and two rescued parrots – an African Grey named Merlin and an Indian Ringneck, fondly called “Pickle”.
