Angie founded Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners (now Girl Geek X) and hosted 200+ Girl Geek Dinners at Silicon Valley companies since January 2008. Each dinner welcomes hundreds of girl geeks into the offices of tech companies – featuring girl geeks onstage as speakers and role models. In addition to leading Girl Geek Dinners, Angie was an early employee at Hackbright Academy, a coding school for women, where she served as VP of Strategic Partnerships, building relationships with employers. She created the mentorship program which enlisted 700+ industry engineers as volunteers for over four years, and connected countless women to new jobs in tech.
Prior to Girl Geek X, she co-founded Women 2.0 (a media company supporting women entrepreneurs) where she served as editor-in-chief. Angie was named in Fast Company’s “Most Influential Women in Technology” as a result in 2010. In her early career, Angie held positions in product management and web/UI production at various Silicon Valley startups.
She holds B.A. degrees in English & Social Welfare from UC Berkeley.
