Celebrating women who have a passion for technology and digital, inspiring the next generation to dream bigger.
Sarah works at a university, helping them to share their research findings around the world.
I first started coding in high school on Harry Potter fan sites.
I love drawing, dancing, and researching women’s history.
I am a leader in digital accessibility for my university.
I design and code the front-end of a Drupal CMS enabling the university faculty to make their research accessible to the world, mainly in agriculture and life sciences.
I think that being a part of sharing research widely is a privilege and a worthy daily challenge.
I began as an artist, became a designer, then began to code what I designed.
I have been coding professionally since 2014.
My former Creative Director, Linda Griffin, a tremendous veteran in her field, encouraged and supported me as I pushed to do more coding in my role as a designer, and inspired me to push for best digital accessibility practices whenever possible.
Everyday women everywhere are working hard to make the internet more accessible to more people.
I wish I had known that coding was a craft and could be as satisfying and exciting as painting a mural, playing an RPG, or writing a story. I wish I had known how it could be collaborative. I think if I had known the thrill and magic of figuring things out and making things work, I’d have started sooner and valued the skills I already had.
The news everyday is filled with stories of women being underestimated, pushed out, and bullied. It can be a challenge to face that, especially when so much collaboration in web development happens in online spaces. But when women support each other and when we stand by our accomplishments, we make our space safer and stronger.
You can find your niche. STEM is vast and it’s ready for women who love all different kinds of things who have all different kinds of skills and interests. You can be who you are and there will be something that lights you up inside and makes you happy to get to work every day.
A revolution without dance is not worth having. – Emma Goldman For me it means finding joy in the fight, and always be yourself.
