What are you looking forward to at Women in Tech Boston?

This conference is designed to empower and inspire women, educate on the latest cutting-edge technologies, and provide networking opportunities. It is a great honor to be able to represent Capital one and continue establishing the Capital One brand in the Boston area.

I am looking forward to meeting fantastic women and WIT allies, making meaningful connections, learning about new technologies, and spreading the good word about Capital One. We haven’t been able to participate in events of this scale for quite some time so this is an exciting opportunity to both attend and present at such a premier conference as WIT Boston 2022.

What advice would you give to a woman looking to step up their career in tech?

Problem-Solving is your most powerful skill. Each day in tech, you’ll be presented with fresh, complex ideas that you need to solve. You have to be ready, therefore, for a lot of problem-solving. When processes or programs are presented for you to answer or debug, you’ve got to learn how to break these down into smaller pieces in order to come up with the best solutions.

What are you looking forward to at Women in Tech Boston?

I’m looking forward to learning about the experiences and careers of other speakers and participants. With the tech industry being so large, I often feel like there are pockets of the industry that I know little to nothing about. I’m excited to expand my knowledge in some of those less familiar spaces!
