Ada Developers Academy

Ada Developers Academy is a year-long intensive training program for women transitioning into software development. I was the lead-instructor for the first two cohorts. I created the ruby + rails + javascript curriculum. I co-taught each cohort. Of the 15 from the first cohort all 15 have landed development jobs with an average salary of $75k. The second cohort are currently in internships. I also created all of the internal software such as the donation site and the student application site.

Luna Sandals

In 2010 I had the oppurtunity to found this small unique business. I worked with my co-founders, Scott Smuin and Barefoot Ted, to build the business from the ground up. My first job was to create ourselves a web app to handle online sales. After that was completed I transitioned to working as the CEO, running the business day-to-day. I passed on that role in 2013, becoming an inactive advisor. At the time that I left our sales had increased to over 1MM for the year.
