I currently spend my days as a career coach for women in tech, but that wasn’t always the case.
I know how hard it can be to get from point A to a distant point B because I’ve been there, too. As a non-coder. I wasn’t confident that I could break into tech until I did it.
Over the course of my career, I worked as a camp counselor in Turkey, a track coach, an ESL tutor, an archivist for the Metropolitan Opera, the Chief of Staff at a tech startup, and the Program Manager of the Grace Hopper Program. These roles may seem varied, but they share a common thread.
In each role, I provided structure, critical feedback, and emotional support to people pursuing their goals.
As Program Manager, I found that the best part of my job was helping students through the job search process. Watching so many of my colleagues and students take bold risks inspired me to make the leap into coaching full-time.
When I’m not coaching, you’ll find me running long distances, testing out new cheese-forward recipes, and following corgis on Instagram.
