I've been a regular attendee of the Dallas Ruby Brigade for several years. I've presented a variety of talks to the group and most recently have taken over as a co-organizer. I've also volunteered for Rails Girls, presented to high school students on software development as a career, and sat on the computer science advisory committee for Brookhaven College.
