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 spearheaded the mentorship program, recruiting and training hundreds of engineers from industry to support the students. Prior to that, she co-founded Women 2.0 (a media company supporting women entrepreneurs) where she served as editor-in-chief. Angie started building simple websites in high school and college, and realized she could get paid to do this – and yes, without a computer science degree.
