I wanted to help solve a problem I was facing in the front row: diversity in technology and leadership. I always noticed I was one of the only women in leadership meetings, and HR would be like, “We want to hire women but we can’t find them!” And I was like, DUH, you don’t suddenly become an empowered tech leader when you’re 30! It has to start young!

I’ve always loved the internet. Back in 2004, I started teaching myself HTML/CSS and Photoshop so I could make websites. I ended up getting a job in an advertising agency because the Creative Director saw a website I built. From there, I just kept making things on the internet. I love the internet. It’s endless what you can do with it.
