I am a girl geek enjoying a technology career that spans more than 25 years. I started as a developer, come from a family of geeks, and now have two children who are Computer Science grads. That's a lot of tech talk for one house.
I have been blogging since 2010, starting when creating a blog was considered pretty odd. This blog - girlgeeklikeme - started as a joint venture between me and my daughter. She has since found her creative side is more fulfilled by creating art than writing, and has committed her future input to the blog through support and kind feedback. :-)
Girlgeeklikeme was launched in 2016. I am on the verge in 2019 of starting a CIO role in an industry that is new and exciting for me.
If you love technology – from coding, system requirements, and project management to managing developers or infrastructure teams – or you are an executive leading and inspiring a large technology team, you’ll feel right at home here.
If you don't consider yourself a geek, or a girl, but just someone trying to balance the learnings of family and career and personal growth, you're also welcome to enjoy the ride.
In addition to posts on daily happenings in technology teams, inspirational leadership messages, and anecdotes on those moments of “I can’t believe this happened in my job", you'll find some photos that inspire me and thoughts on human interactions and martial arts.
Women in technology - WIT- powerful, innovative, and awesome.
