Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
When she was young, she was always the student that helped her teachers set up their audio/visual technology.
Her brother was always tinkering with his computer and taking it apart, and he’d give her the spare parts.
One day, her brother sent a pop-up message from his computer to her computer; she was fascinated with this new mode of communication.
She always knew that she wanted to be in the field of computer science because she wanted to teach the world more about the technology we use daily.
She got into the security side of technology for similar reasons—she wanted to help people understand how important security is, and to help them implement new security measures.
In college, she got an internship with her school’s information technology department.
She initially entered college as a computer engineer, but she found out very quickly that she didn’t like it and switched over to information assurance.
Says that despite her brother being her initial role model, breaking into the male-dominated world of computer science since then has been hard.
