Flameproofing Your Tech Career: Preventing Burnout with Self Care

Link visible for attendees

Our speaker for December is Dana Arroway.

Flameproofing Your Tech Career: Preventing Burnout with Self Care

A little bit of fire creates energy, but too much fire destroys it. - Chinese medicine maxim

As software developers, burnout is a real risk that some consider inevitable. As women, we are influenced and even directly trained from birth to assign a low priority to our own needs. In order to prevent burnout, we must diligently practice self care and self advocacy, and recognize that we have wide blind spots around our own needs.

After this talk, you will

  • understand self care, self advocacy, and self soothing
  • create boundaries that protect you from burnout
  • take action that stabilizes your core self care process
  • identify realistic goals to establish flameproof habits

Dana Arroway is a deeply committed software engineer based out of Southeast Texas. She has extensive experience in the tech industry, as well as a master's degree in Integrative Health Studies, and is a graduate of the Plan II Honors program at the University of Texas at Austin. She has been an acupuncturist, an entrepreneur, a technical consultant, and now a developer. She helps write full stack web applications for clients all over the world and uses her experience and education to support fellow developers that struggle on their journey.
