I am currently a Web Developer and Applications Manager at the Arnold Arboretum, as well as a freelance Developer for Harvard Kennedy School’s Journalist’s Resource and Shorenstein Center. I also founded and co-chair Harvard’s Women in Technology group (@HarvardWIT) in 2013, and have been organizing lectures and events since then to promote inclusivity at Harvard, to collaborate, and to discuss our experiences as women in technology at Harvard.

At the Arboretum, I work on the Arboretum’s responsive web app with Jason Sardano, which was developed with the ESRI ArcGIS API JavaScript. I also transferred our website into the content management system WordPress.

Prior to this, I was the Managing Editor for Harvard Papers in Botany and also the Web Manager for the Harvard University Herbaria. I started out as a botanist and worked for several years as a horticulturist, and then in a plant phylogenetic lab conducting seed germination studies and DNA sequencing experiments. I also volunteer at the Arboretum leading tours of the grounds.
