Panelists

Kasey Cox

Kasey began her path into tech more than three years ago while working as a baker. Although baking nurtured her creative spirit, she has always had an analytical mind. Kasey received her B.A. in chemistry then later attended graduate school for chemistry. Wanting greater career flexibility and more diverse learning opportunities, she decided to take a step back, work as a baker, and simultaneously research a new career path. She soon discovered the vast world of technology. After doing online tutorials, reading plenty of articles and books, she completed a Udacity Nanodegree in Data Analysis in which she learned the Python programming language. She later moved to San Francisco and attended Hackbright Academy. Kasey is currently a software engineer at Twilio.

Andrea Beale

After college, Andrea started her journey in tech as an intern-turned-technical-project-manager at Opower, an energy-efficiency tech company in Washington, D.C. She moved to San Francisco to work as an operations manager at healthcare startup Forward, and subsequently joined Opendoor's business operations team. At Opendoor, Andrea enjoyed partnering with technical teams to solve customer-facing issues, and her interest in engineering solidified after learning SQL and Python. She now works as a Data Engineer for the Portal product at Facebook.

Inhye Baik

Inhye Baik is a software engineer at Coinbase. Previously, she was an R&D software engineer at Eventbrite and studied public health at Johns Hopkins and Harvard where she learned statistical programming and health surveillance. Additionally, she has done research for the Maryland Dept. of Health, MIT Sloan School of Management, and nonprofits.
