What has been the biggest challenge you've faced since becoming a mom? 

Time management.

What has been your proudest accomplishment as a mom?


Having my baby girl and spending time with her on a daily basis. I feel blessed to be a part of her world and her early fascinations.

What has been your greatest professional accomplishment?

I am excited to learn something new and to code alongside other moms.
