This is a story all about how my life got turned. JK, I wish I had an awesome Fresh Prince inspired rap to intro myself! Gonna work on that. In the meantimeOriginally, my lifelong dream was to be Pocahontas at either Disneyland or Disneyworld, but I surpassed the height limit (54) when I was 14 and had to default to the backup plan. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2012 with degrees in Computer Engineering (Software) and Electrical Engineering (Larger Scale Power Systems, Sustainable Power, Power Electronics and Electric Devices). I thought I was going to illuminate rural villages in SE Asia, but instead interned at Microsoft (PM), Google (Dev) and Amazon (Dev) back to back my last year of school and was immediately enchanted by the techy good life. After much debate, I chose to return to Microsoft and havent looked back :) I worked as a PM on the automated test system in Office Engineering for 1.5 years. I found myself going on so many recruiting trips that I decided to turn it into my full time job. I am obsessed with University Recruiting and love working with college kiddies! Outside of work, Im the type of soccer player that almost always gets kicked off the field by the ref, but am the ultimate cheerleader and team player. I am really good at cherry picking in Ultimate Frisbee and have dreams of becoming an amateur volleyball doubles player. I also have a fashion blog and am trying to become Instagram famous. I could go on (no really, I could), but Ill stop myself here. Looking forward to getting to know you!
