How can we engage women and bring awareness to the technology industry in Milwaukee?

I am interested in bringing awareness to young girls to the fact that they would make a great contribution to technology and they would get a lot out of it. I think the lack of women in engineering is directly related to the educational system not supporting girls on the path to higher mathematics and technology.

What are you passionate about? What do you want to get out of this group?

I want to get involved in the community and I am interested in being a mentor. I want to see what is out there.

How often do you want to meet? What types of events would you like to attend?

A few times a month would be good. I would like to meet other women in technology who want to make a difference and talk about how we could.


I am a recent graduate of University of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a degree in computer science. I am working at Centare as a software apprentice engineer and am very excited about my new job and the career ahead of me.
