I've continued to maintain and grow a vast network (technical leaders, business founders, investors, authors) throughout the US (and abroad), as there's no greater value than the relationships we have and helping each other succeed in endeavors for the greater good. I've since also worked as an engineer, leader, and strategist with well-known brands and companies such as Volkswagon, GE, Fidelity, and Starwood Hotels. Having personally battled many hurdles that be with being an ambitions female engineer, I'm a strong advocate for minorities in technology, and am currently writing a book covering the importance of diversity and inclusion in tech companies.
