Ms. Coding Tech Leader

About Me:

I am a Software Developer with 5+ years of experience. I can build/test/deploy web applications on major cloud provider platforms. I didn’t discover coding until the very last year of my undergrad. I loved my programming class so much I changed my major within months of graduation.


Undergrad School: Arizona State University

Undergrad Major: Computer Information Systems

GPA: 2.9

GMAT: 680

Age: 30,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Founded women in STEM student organization, and was a program coordinator for a youth girls coding organization.

Work History:

Title: Software Developer

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Fortune 100 Top 10

Length of Employment: 7 yrs, 4 mos

Big Life Wins:

I created a program at work that helps non-technical employees learn to code. I’ve started many grassroots efforts that have gone company-wide. The efforts have focused on fostering diversity of thought within the development community. I’ve published an article on the company’s public engineering blog.

Post MBA Goal:

Technology is becoming more and more prevalent in modern society. Instead of building tech, I want to be more involved in the strategic direction of emerging technology or work within the intersection between technology and public policy.


Target School: Tepper

Status: Open

Considering: IU Kelley, Georgetown McDonough

The key thing I would want to know is what you mean by “strategic direction of emerging technology”? This is very vague. For someone who is so deeply involved in the topic I suspect you have a much clearer idea of what you want to do – or maybe simply of the impact you want to have – than you have shared here. And so I would push you to really explain your short and long term goals and how an MBA will help you. This is …

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. I really enjoyed reading about your journey in discovering your passion for coding and helping people both at your company and within the greater community get into it as well! Your profile reminds me of that of a successful candidate I worked with last year who loved introducing girls to technology (in her case, through the nonprofit organization ChickTech).

    Your desire to transition to the strategy side of technology makes sense to me – it sounds like you could go in a couple different directions: a.) technology product management b.) strategy consulting for tech companies, with the long-term goal of internal strategy at a technology organization or an org at the intersection of tech and public policy. …
