My name is Natalie. I'm a Software Engineer.
I am currently working as a Staff Infrastructure Engineer.
If I have time, I also enjoy working on building and automating various tools that help our development team be more productive and happy.
What motivates me at my work is the fast pace, team orientation, and creative environment, where there are always new challenges.
I'm passionate about helping make infrastructure more accessible. I love solving hard problems and all things containers. I enjoy being able to help engineers learn new ways to solve problems they are facing.
I consider myself one of not many engineers out there who worked on the highest number of CI/CD systems (because I enjoy making things better in the Software Release Processes at any company I work for)
Occasionally I blog or speak at conferences. I'm a technical mentor. My mentoring expertise is in the below topics: - career development - self-improvement skills - interviewing skills - collaborating, communication, and soft skills - I have experience mentoring on various tech topics related to Python programing language or Infrastructure/DevOps.
In my spare time, I like to hike or camp with my aussiedoodle Chai, and stand-up paddle (SUP) across the Bay.
Thank you for stopping by :)
