Currently leading the Site Reliability Engineering team at Salesforce (within the Heroku platform). I am always looking to network with other people working in similar environments who want to meet up and engage in professional dialogue and mutual exchange of ideas.
My blog chronicles what has been my unique journey in this industry over the last several years. Starting anew in 2021 when the world has graciously slowed down enough to allow me some time to reflect and prioritize. In the spirit of keeping some old memories and being fully transparent below, you will find part of the original words I used earlier in my career that still reigns true for me today though with much more experience and stories along the way. Enjoy!
My passion project is to bring the gift of code and technology to the many under-represented communities in the USA, like my hometown of Gary, Indiana – with a special focus on getting more females of color in tech. Hopefully, there will be plenty of posts to this blog that show progress in that area.
I truly believe that technology will serve as the catalyst for people in poverty to change their lifestyles, both individually and as a community. If I could contribute to that progress in anyway… I will know I have made a difference in this world.
Even with all this going on I do find time to indulge in my favorite past times such as attending advanced movie screenings, avid reader of self-improvement books, absolutely love dogs, and not to mention I am a mom, wife, and daughter.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog posts as much as I enjoy posting them…. feel free to leave me a comment and I’ll do my best to respond in a timely manner.
