I'm a senior software engineer, a fierce advocate for diversity in tech, and a doting Corgi mom. 👩🏽💻
I have over six years of full-time software engineering experience with a heavy focus on product and web frontend development. My specialties lie in growth engineering, design systems, and accessibility.
Outside work, I enjoy speaking, teaching, and mentoring to lead by example and inspire the next generation of software engineers.
I am based in Inglewood, California, with my partner and our two Corgis, Luna & Sueño.
I was born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, and I identify as Peruvian-American.
I am passionate about supporting and uplifting Latinx professionals in tech (especially Latina software engineers), employee resource groups, and software engineering apprentices.
I've enjoyed having my work published through GitHub's ReadME project.
My open source journey is featured on GitHub's README blog.
ONWARD: A framework for maintaining maintainers was published as a GitHub ReadME guide.
Gave my brief two cents on the art of finding your open source mentor on the ReadME Podcast.
I'm the proud sponsor of the 👩🏽💻️ emoji through The Unicode Consortium.
