KodeConnect is excited to announce the addition of two new board members to the KodeConnect family! At KodeConnect, our board is committed to exposing and engaging underserved youth with STEM learning experiences. Sara Czyzewicz and Ed Cabellon, two accomplished and impressive individuals, will soon be joining us in our constant effort to help inspire the next generation of programmers, engineers, and problem solvers.
Sara Czyzewicz: CEO, Leader, and Strategist
As the CEO of her own company for over five years, Sara worked tirelessly within the tech sector, building up long-lasting relationships. During her successful career within social media management, Sara has worked as an engineer, leader, and strategist with well-known brands such as Fidelity, GE, Starwood Hotels, and Volkswagen.
"Having personally battled many hurdles that come with being an ambitious female engineer, I'm a strong advocate for minorities in technology," says Sara. After receiving her first computer when she was 12, Sara began to develop websites, and eventually became obsessed with the creative and technological process. It's this personal insight that lends her towards work with the youth.
Ed Cabellon: A Nationally Recognized Expert in Education
Ed has spent over 20 years working in state universities and colleges, striving to positively impact the lives of his students and their families.
