Happy Tuesday Reigners! I’ve known Angie for a few years now: first through HackBright Academy and then through Girl Geek Dinners. Angie is one of our key Women Who Reign because she has dedicated herself to helping other women connect and find opportunities within tech. Thank you for all that you do!
Tell us a little about yourself along with a fun fact.
By day, I work at a women’s coding school called Hackbright Academy in San Francisco. By night, I organize Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners – we’ve hosted over 100 fun dinners for girl geeks at companies!
