Private tutor in Seattle, WA
PhD student in Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) at the University of Washington. Undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University (graduated with honors in 2015)
I started taking computer science classes almost 10 years ago, and since then I have years of college TA experience, and have taught STEM summer camps at the middle school and high school levels. As a T.A. for CSE 231: Intro to Programming I, I spend at least 2 hours each week helping students fix problems with their code in help room and 2 hours each week teaching a lab session, then spend the rest of the time grading. This course is an introductory Python course geared toward students who have never programmed before, so I have a lot of experience with beginners. In addition to teaching work, I also have academic research and industry programming experience, including 2 internships at Facebook, so I have a good understanding of how the concepts from class translate into the real world.

I have two main interest areas: women in tech and hackathons. As a woman in a technical field, I have a strong interest in recruiting, retaining, and supporting women in tech. I was the president of Michigan State University (MSU) Women in Computing, and have acted as Treasurer and Corporate Relations Chair in past years. As a builder, maker, and tinkerer, I have become heavily involved in Major League Hackathons in the past year. The "hack" in these hackathons involves rapid prototyping and idea development -- think "hacking something together", not "hacking the mainframe"! I placed 2nd at HackMIT and 3rd at TreeHacks (Stanford's hackathon) and have created award-winning applications at 4 other Major League Hackathons.
