I never thought I'd be a developer. That was for my smart guy friends.

Fortunately Jesse came into my life and changed all that.

He encouraged me to pursue programming. He'd debug my code as I cried alongide him, then he'd teach some more.

Now I spend my time organizing Thunder Plains Conference, helping with okcjs (the Oklahoma City JavaScript group) and teaching women to code at Nerdy Girls Code Club.
