Why do you think it’s important for more women to join the tech industry?

It is important for women to join the industry to make their voices heard. Technology affects our day to day world in so many significant ways. With more woman working in all areas of the industry we should see that they will have increased influence over the development and marketing of new products and innovation.

 

What advice would you give yourself just starting out?

Take it all in! You wont know everything all at once....be a humble observer and do not be afraid to ask questions!


What first sparked your interest in working in the tech industry?

I was providing clinical oversight for a Remote Patient Monitoring program for a number of years and saw first hand how patient outcomes improved. I also saw how the technology affected the elderly population. They were learning how to use technology through this product-increasing their tech literacy-this would affect them beyond their health. It would open doors to other products that would improve their quality of life.


What is the best professional advice you've ever received? 

Have strong views that are loosely held...be willing to be open to differing opinions.


What is a quote you live by? 

With God all things are possible


What is your favorite book, podcast or tv show and why? 

I am loving Matthew McConaughey's book Greenlights. This is a fun book with some really deep moments, and with all that is going on in the world, it is a great little escape.
