About GeekGirlWeb

GeekGirlWeb has evolved into a space to share resources on learning to code, techniques for personal branding and career building through technology.

 

Around 14 I started teaching myself to code and I let my love of learning and sharing turn it into a career. I've been a 'Jill of all trades', having done full-stack (front-end, backend, servers) and have been able to teach kids to code through my non-profit CoderDojo NYC. Now I speak about technology with a special blend of mindfulness and authenticity.

I'm here to share:

  • keeping your passions alive and learn by creating with technology
  • how to open doors to opportunities and connections through personal branding
  • creating the best version of you
