I am currently looking for more conferences to speak at for my list of growing topics, both technical and non-technical. Click here to see my talks.

I am looking for more interested women in tech or junior developers to work on an open source project I’m starting. Contact me or tweet me if interested.

I am looking for more teaching or mentoring opportunities in Pittsburgh, PA. Contact me or tweet me and we can talk about it.

I wrote the Medium post “Life, Gender, and the Pursuit of Happiness” in September 2015 and has over 10,000 views. I also gave the talk “The Power of Secrets” in 2016 and 2017 talking about the incredibly unexpected results that happened from that post. I continue to get amazing and wonderful feedback from both. The blog post has reposted on four publications including Women 2.0. I will continue to respond to every comment and encourage those who need it. (If you haven’t left a comment or tweet, please do! I’d love to hear from you!)

Thank you to Derek Sivers for the idea of making a /now page.
