I wanted a place to share my progress and learnings as a woman in the tech world, a distance runner, and a traveler. So here we are.

As I write this, I am a tech education specialist in Chicago. I’m training for the Chicago Marathon on October 7, 2018—my first ever marathon (Update: I am now a marathoner!). And I’m planning a trip to Europe in December to celebrate my birthday.

I love books, coffee, games, cocktails, mac + cheese, hiking, travel abroad, and exploring new places.

I don’t know what this blog will become—if anything. But I hope it will at least get me into the habit of writing regularly, and help me find my voice, get my thoughts out, and track progress in some way. And if it ends up helping a few people along the way, that’d be cool!
