Nora is nonprofit fundraising professional turned coder.
Today, she & I chat about her journey to tech after dedicating her career and education to mission-driven companies and how she used to perceive corporate Americas as the “dark-side.” She shares that it was in fact her therapist, who told her about Ada Developers Academy and encouraged her to pursue software development.
She’s so thankful for that advice, as she has now discovered a way to blend her passion for tech with her love for helping people and does so today as a Software Development Engineer on a Kindle team at Amazon.
We chat about the parallels between the fundraising and technical marketing industries and how many of the skills are transferrable from one to the other.
This episode is not one to miss and Nora wants you to know that you have the right AND the ability to learn anything!
You are a Badass
