Community organizer and storyteller for Sketch City, a registered 501(c)3, Houston's Code for America brigade, and a community of technology advocates and civic hackers. They collaborate with the public sector on technology solutions and civic experiments. Starting in 2014, I helped grow the community from an annual hackathon to monthly civic hack nights and from 700 to over 2,000 participants.
Women in Tech Houston (WITH)
Co-organizer for Women in Tech Houston, a community resource for the support, advancement, and growth of the community of women in technology. Co-led a UX-driven discovery and design process for the community website.
I was one of two delivery leads for Code for DC during a time when they were leaving the beginner stage and growing into a larger, more established membership group. I helped newcomers find a welcome environment to get involved and see where to use their skills. Every biweekly meeting, I helped onboard new members and introduced them to active projects in need of their skills. I also consulted with several active projects as needed, helping with marketing and content strategy.
