I’m a Software Engineer at Microsoft. I work on an incubation team that works to build experiences using software and hardware prototypes to define the next generation of Windows Devices and experiences. Previously at Microsoft, I was in a rotational program for college new hires where I got to try out two other roles. First, I was a Service Engineer working on two factor authentication with a focus on accessibility and usability. Second, I was a User Researcher for XBOX User Research on the Platform team. I went to a liberal arts college called Goucher College where I made my own major in Human Computer Interaction.
I believe that having a liberal arts degree has helped me in the technology sector, and hope that soon companies realize the power of a liberal arts degree.
