Alicia

Hello! I'm a full stack software engineer who works remote for a company called Abstract.

Prior to Abstract, I worked at other fast-growing startups doing technical support.

Outside of work, I'm a WomenWhoCode Atlanta volunteer, blog post writer, conference speaker and frequent open source contributor.
