After a long successful career in technology, I changed my focus to volunteering with special emphasis on technology organizations. I am passionate about bringing children and young adults into the diverse and fascinating world of technology and entrepreneurship. Following in the footsteps of the innovative and inspirational founder of Code Savvy, The Works, and co-founder of Technovation[MN], Rebecca Schatz, I am now the Executive Director of Code Savvy. On the Technovation[MN] board, I serve as lead for Team Recruitment, Regional Ambassador for the Global Technovation Challenge, and a team mentor. In June 2015, I was honored by Technovation Global for my dedication and leadership for their inaugural Regional Ambassador award.
