About

I participated in  the Women Who Code Atlanta Hackathon event that occurred over the summer. It was a really great experience of meeting other amazing women in tech & design. Over the course of 3 day’s we split up in about 9 teams and got to work on different ideas for apps / websites / wearable technology. My teams project dealt with the problem that a lot of companies have when it comes to matching a valuable mentor to a mentee within the company. It was a B2B based web program that would solve that issue by using an algorithm that could match the best two pairs together. I designed the UX for the project in Illustrator and we used InVision to present a clickable version during our presentation. We ended up winning the Explorer Award for our innovation into this matter.
