This Week, I Am…
:construction: Work on our community website revamp (which includes a new, separate page for our Heroes Advocacy Program) continues! This week, I’m working with @McKennaR and @katie.richards to finalize our website content and the design briefs, so they’re ready to be shared with our Communications and Web Design/Dev Teams.

:rainbow_flag: Collaborating with my Pridetheon ERG partner, @ANW, to plan a volunteer activity for Pridetheon ERG members, a fundraising campaign, and a few other activities. I’ll let y’all know if/when we need community support!

What I am Most Excited About…

I am reading

  • Mountains of medical journals on lyme disease

Love all of this! Ahh yeah, you have a bunch of talks coming up! Are you all ready for your Women Who Code’s CONNECT Recharge talk?

And I’d love to see pics of your garden, especially after the loofahs sprout!

Also, re: looking through Cosmo mags, I totally relate. I’ve come to a point in my life where I prioritize comfort over looking stylish. Lol!
