Wow. I got a recognition award at the New Mexico Technology Council’s Women in Technology awards celebration.
It was an exciting honor to get an award in the same ceremony as 9 other women who are doing things with technology like saving lives, creating clean energy, desalinating water, and managing tech companies. Yeah, PhDs and MDs all over the place. And me. It was surreal.
Now I even have a label. I’m a ‘web evangelist.’ I may be the first of the breed, but it feels like a good description of what I’ve been doing for the last 15 years.
The WIT group also gave 10 scholarships to high school senior girls from all over the state who are interested in technology.
Here’s a local news report about the event: New Mexico Business Journal.
