About Me

I'm an Information Security Engineer at Mapbox. I work on everything from running our bug bounty program on HackerOne, to locking down our AWS infrastructure, to making sure every team member knows how to use their password manager.

Outside of work I'm an active volunteer in the local DCTech community. I'm the Director of Operations for Women Who Code DC. Before that I served as one of the leads for WWCDC's Front End Lab Nights, helping local women learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. As a member of DCFemTech, I also helped organize DCFemTech's 2nd annual Hack for Good hackathon.

Before Mapbox, I worked as a SharePoint Administrator from 2012-2015 on contracts for the United States Department of Defense. During that time I became an expert at applying the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) to SharePoint farms. I wrote a PowerShell module that can STIG a complete SharePoint farm (SharePoint 2010/2013, IIS 7, and SQL Server 2012) in less than 5 minutes. I could also write a Site Security Plan in less than a week.

Other than technology, I enjoy music, strength training, cycling, playing guitar, snowboarding, and cooking.
