Tech job search coaching

I occasionally help people prepare for technical job searches through resume feedback, mock interviews, and other coaching.

Diversity in tech

I occasionally consult about how to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in tech in a variety of ways including writing, public speaking, and discussion. I am largely retired from this work, but will still occasionally provide consultation behind the scenes.

Past projects

Open Source Bridge

Content chair for the conference in 2016.

Node.js Inclusivity Working Group

Member of the group for part of 2015-2016.

Firebees is the home for my media projects — mostly involving comics and political cartoons. It's very out-of-date, and I will likely fold my favorite parts into this site and retire the rest at some point the future.

Girl Develop It Pittsburgh

I was one of the founding chapter leaders for the Pittsburgh chapter of Girl Develop It. I also helped develop curriculum, teach, and TA classes throughout the year.

Steel City Ruby Conf

Member of the organizing committee in 2012 and 2013.

Tech speaker support group

I ran a semi-regular support group for people interested in getting help and ideas to speak at tech events and conferences for a couple years. The group focused on underrepresented speakers, but included people with a variety of backgrounds and levels of experience.

Battling the Invisible Monsters impostor syndrome support group

As a follow-up to my talk about impostor syndrome, I created an online support group for people to discuss impostor syndrome.
