Aloha from Big Island! I live in Kona, Hawaii with my husband, two sons, and their Gramma Brown. We moved here in 2018, and we spend a good amount of time at the beach or looking out at the ocean. I love all sorts of things that I’m no expert in but find enjoyment from doing. I’m not a fan of cooking, and I only eat chocolate if there are enough other flavors to overpower it. I’ve spent significant parts of my life in various parts of NY—upstate and down—and Salt Lake City.
Another change in 2018 was my joining GitHub. I’m a Director of Engineering with a consulting background. I like working on databases more than user interfaces, and I love to lead teams to plan and prioritize work to delight our users and customers, delivering value quickly and expanding on it over time. Over my career, I keep navigating towards work that enables engineers to really have fun at work while they’re maximizing how effective they are. You can typically find me focusing in software developer life cycle related (SDLC) areas like CICD, internal tooling, and automation.
I’m passionate about finding and keeping faith, and using it at home and at work. I want to help everyone take their turn deciding what’s best, with love and understanding. I aim to help women figure out how to become the best version of themselves in every one of their roles. For women in tech or interested in working in tech, I want to make it possible for them to contribute, and help tech contribute back to our families.
