Speaking

I’ve spoken at 60+ events since 2012 on a range of different topics.

I’ve covered everything from more soft topics like my personal career journey, being a Latina engineer in the tech industry, women leadership in tech to more technical topics such as TypeScript, Progressive Web Apps, Static Site Generators, Web Design, JavaScript, etc.

I’ve created 8+ dedicated talks so far that you can find on my talks page.

My presentation slides can be found on my SlideShare profile .

My bio along with a speaker image can be found on my about page.

If you’d like me to speak at an event, don’t hesitate to contact me. 📨
