Her passion for ensuring that kids have the opportunity to gain technology-related skills led to founding the non-profit, LA Makerspace (LAM), a family friendly community. LAM is the primary STEAM service provider for LA Public Library, the largest publicly funded library in the world.

She currently serves as a technology advisor to UC Irvine Digital Media Research Hub.

As a strong supporter of the LA tech startup scene she felt compelled to showcase it and co-created the globally recognized site, Represent.LA that is open sourced and re-used by cities around the world.
