Responsible AI Educator

After starting my career in marketing I transition to Data Science with nearly no prior technical skills. Recently my focus is on educating engineers on how to operationalize responsible AI systems.

Work

How did I get started?
In 2014, I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Digital Media and Communications degree. I worked for marketing agencies, app companies, and a plethora of online publishers before transitioning into Data Science.

After I graduated with my MS in Data Science I attended the Data 4 Black Lives Conference and my entire view of the industry changed. My eyes were open to how algorithms encode bias and I knew my focus would be to work to mitigate the harm caused by biased machine learning.

Right now I'm working as a Responsible AI Educator at Microsoft, combining what I learned in my communications and Data Science degrees.

Other Projects
Building a technology education platform for marginalized learners.
