Community

Philly Tech Sistas

Philly Tech Sistas provides programming workshops and professional development events for Black women. I joined the curriculum team for their first year of classes in 2019. On that team, provided input and feedback on courses created by other team-members, co-wrote the first part of the HTML and CSS course and co-taught the first iteration of the class.

ProjectMEOW

Project MEOW is an all-volunteer, animal welfare group that helps residents humanely reduce their feral and stray cat populations. I worked with the organization as their Twitter Manager in 2016 and 2017 and worked with their Executive Director on a poster campaign.

LadyHacks

LadyHacks started in 2012 as Philadelphia’s first hackathon for women. I was a co-organizer in 2016 and 2017. In addition to working with the rest of the team on planning and executing the event, I was responsible for designing and developing its identity and website.
