The last 3 years have been extremely difficult for myself and my family. I left my career, my hobbies, and my personal life to take care of myself and my family. In that time everything site data to even remembering how to code has been lost. I've lost connections with dear and wonderful people I miss. I really lost who I am and was before my life took a hit. I am literally starting from scratch to put my life back together again and refind the passion and drive that is Midwest Nerd Chick. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at the email at the bottom of the page. Thank you.

Where am I

Did you meet me at Start Up Week? Are you wondering why a developer has such a sad page?!?! I am wondering the same thing, but when I went to StartUp week, I had no idea it would be inspiring me to really restart Midwest Nerd Chick. I am currently working on a much prettier site that reflects what I am working on, but for now, this basic HTML page is what I got.

A Software Product Owner who has decided to help businesses, groups, and non-profits understand how to accommodate employees with disabilities, both physical and mental, how to talk to employees who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community, and how to make the work environment open and friendly to all religions.

With 39 years of mental disabilities, 10 years as a non-christian, 8 years being part of the rainbow community, and 6 years with a physical disability, I have been at so many jobs that I loved, but due to not feeling like I had a voice or that who I am or my struggles would be listened to, I left. This doesn't have to be and I hope I can help your organization learn to be open and inclusive.
