Engineering leader with over 20 years of experience at companies such as Shopify, Lever, Wealthsimple, IBM and BlackBerry/QNX.

I have a passion for building high quality, resilient software that scales, and as such has rebuilt platforms and APIs from the ground up at all of these companies. I launched the first BlackBerry 10 device on QNX, and then adapted what was built to QNX Car for millions of drivers to enjoy. She was among the first to create GraphQL APIs for Shopify’s product and partners and enhanced Lever’s platform to increase the number of integrations by over 500% to almost 300.

Building diverse teams, and particularly gender-balanced ones, is a passion of mine. At Wealthsimple, I increased the representation of people that identify as women and non-binary in engineering by 10 percentage points to 30%.

I provide 1:1 coaching and mentorship directly, as well as via platforms and communities such as Plato and SheTO. My articles have been published in Hackernoon, Level Up Coding and Better Programming. I've spoken at many events, and most recently taught a course on retention with LeadDev.

Leadership coaching

Are you trying to decide what's next for you? Or perhaps you're onboarding to a new role and want to set yourself up for success?

Use these sessions to work through anything that's top of mind for you: to get a promotion, weigh opportunities, work through challenges and develop specific skills.

I use a mix of coaching and mentorship to help you define actionable next steps, and when appropriate share my personal frameworks and templates to provide you with a starting point.
