Opera Singer turned Software Engineer




Hi, there! I’m Catherine, and I am a full stack software engineer. I currently work at Mavenlink, a professional services platform focused on resource planning and project management. I work on agile teams to deliver test-driven features using Ruby on Rails, React / Redux, and Backbone/Marionette.

Previously, I worked at Red Antler, a branding agency in Brooklyn, where I built and maintained fully responsive websites for a varied and diverse clientele. I am a graduate of The Flatiron School Web Development Immersive Program.

In 2017, I co-founded Women Level Up a monthly meetup aimed at empowering female developers through education, networking, and mentorship. Additionally, I co-lead Maven Diversity, a bi-weekly meeting at Mavenlink to create a safe space for education and change around diversity and inclusion issues. I also love to speak at conferences. I've spoken at RubyConf, RubyHack, and ForwardJS. Take a look at my talk at RubyConf, Mozart Could’ve Been an Engineer - Music + Code. I spoke further on the parallels between music and code as a guest on the podcast Ruby Rogues.

Technology I use on the regular: Ruby on Rails, React / Redux, Backbone / Marionette, Git, GitHub, Webpack, Gulp
