Hi! My name is Allison. I'm the Head of Engineering at Forem. I've worn many hats in multiple industries including Director of Engineering at GitHub, software developer, managing director, and community builder.
I also started a podcast about being a parent in tech, Parent Driven Development and I'm the board president of Ruby Central. I'm an internationally recognized keynote speaker and I speak on a variety of topics including building interactive workshops for engineers, working remotely, and more.
When I'm not coding, you can find me encouraging my son’s climbing skills, being both proud and annoyed about my daughter’s sassiness, or pretending I have time to bake. I live in the Washington, DC area.
