About Me


I am an IBM Senior Cloud Engineer who specializes in the Watson Data and AI services. I work primarily by leveraging technical skills build cloud-native solutions for customers.

Before joining IBM I worked for NASA’s Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility as a Software Engineering Intern. While there I focused on the Aquila display program which was used to display flight data in real-time from payloads. I’m also a former High School Aerospace Scholar and Community College Aerospace Scholar! Because I enjoy staying busy, I participated in the Distributed Research Experience for Undergraduates program at through the National Science Foundation at The University of Alabama during the summer of 2015 where I researched pervasive systems for elder care. You can read about my experience in this article from the Computing Research Association for Women or on my blog from that summer. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (math minor, woot) from The University of Texas at Tyler shortly after that. Again because I evidently do not enjoy free time, I decided to begin working towards my Master’s degree in Computer Science and as of 2020, I have graduated from Texas State University’s Computer Science graduate program!

Outside of work, I am an East Texas native (8th generation) but have lived in Austin for 4 years. My interests include gaming, astronomy, reading, kayaking, women’s rights, spending time with my dogs, and trying new restaurants around Austin. Until recently I owned a motorcycle and still consider it to be one of my favorite hobbies.

The Dogs

I love dogs and have three of my own: Apollo, Asia, and Mr. Hubble. They are all rescues, and I would highly encourage anyone looking to add a furry member to their family to consider adopting. If you can’t adopt, consider donating or volunteering! Since 2012 I have been volunteering as the webmaster for the animal shelter that I adopted two of the dogs from: www.barctx.org

"Apollo was born in 2009, and I adopted her when she was only 6 weeks old. She likes to follow me everywhere I go!"

"Mr. Hubble is the most sociable of the three. He even has his own Instagram account: @mrhubble He was born in 2012 and I adopted him in 2013 after he was found roaming the streets."

"The newest edition, Asia! I adopted her in 2019, and as of 2020 she is 12 years young. She loves sleeping and snacking, as we all do."
