Julie is a software engineer who likes to focus on the front-end and user experience, a feminist, a cat lady, and a level 15 wizandrist. When she's not working at her day job, she focuses on championing diversity in tech and building the Pittsburgh tech community. She organizes and teaches classes for the Pittsburgh chapter of Girl Develop It, an organization that helps teach women how to code.
Julie is also known for her smashing Feminist Hulk impressions and her Roomba-powered cat army. If you listen carefully, you may be able to hear her screaming the catchphrase, "my technology will be intersectional or it will be BULLSHIT!" (inspired by the fabulous Flavia Dzodan)
