Senior Software Engineer

Disney Streaming

My current role revolves around technical software development. I develop the products that enable Disney to display advertisements across all their online platforms.

I am passionate about bringing positive changes to people's lives through technology. I love meeting new people, collaborating, and working on features to make tech better!

My day revolves around solving technical challenges and collaborating with teams. Problem-solving is a significant part of my role. Throughout the day, I engage in design discussions, brainstorming approaches to enhance our products, and offering technical guidance to junior team members. Communication is key, as I frequently interact with both engineers and business to ensure alignment and smooth project execution.

I have always been fascinated by technology, especially computer programming. I hold both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Staying up to date with industry trends and advancements is essential in any field, which is why cultivating a habit of self-directed learning has proven to be highly beneficial.

I want to become an Executive in Technology; we need more women representation in board rooms and decision making! I constantly strive to grow myself professionally through exciting projects and learning new skills.

I really enjoy inventing my time in championing STEM careers for women and being part of tech networks. I love watching history and nature documentaries, traveling, exploring new cuisine and cultures. I enjoy reading fiction and crime thriller books, and I am a big Harry Potter fan!
