I am originally from the Bay Area (Berkeley, CA), and moved to Charlotte, NC over 10 years ago.
I have a Masters in Computer Science and a Graduate Certificate in Information Security and Privacy from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). I have 9 years of IT experience with 7 of those years being in cyber security.
My foundation is in web application security but I have branched out to secure core reviews, mobile and cloud security. I also have interests in IoT (Internet of Things). My interests are eclectic as I am a lifelong learner. I love any and all aspects of cyber security!
I started a blog, PassionForPentesting. In its inception, I explored cyber security topics by solving CTFs (Capture the Flags). The site has now grown to review cyber security training as well as provide guidance to aspiring cyber security professionals. The site has walkthroughs for challenges in web application security, mobile security, and cloud security. I am a gamer at heart and own a RetroPie where I play my vintage video games. I love going to music concerts. I am a proud furry mom to my daughter, Sasha, who is spoiled beyond measure.
