Bio
Began my tech career in high school in the tech academy. I then went on to receive my associates in business management. I began a consulting company and I noticed that my clients had a high demand for websites and mobile applications. That is when I decided to make the leap back into technology. I went to a couple of tech bootcamps and then received my front-end developer certification. I continued pushing towards learning more in tech. My consulting company has since grown. I am currently pursing a degree in data science.

Why would you recommend exploring careers in science and technology to other Latina girls?
Often times, Latina Girls do not know that STEM carers can be fun. They may be frighten than it's dominated by men or are frighten by the curriculum involved. By building a network of fellow female Latina women, we can overcome that. It can be something that they really excel and at the same time, companies need our perspective. Our experiences and our backgrounds gives us a different point of view that currently is not represented.
