Sara Gibbons

Speaker Bio:

Sometimes chef, full-time mom, but 100% geek, Sara Gibbons spent her youth building Legos, solving puzzles, and playing video games. Little did she know it was priming her for an amazing Software Engineering career. Sara spent two years studying Actuarial Science before a friend convinced her to take a C++ class to help him pass. By the end of the semester she'd switched her major and was getting ready for her first internship. Born and raised in the Motor City, Sara quickly worked up the ranks in the software world running large automotive companies. Soon Sara left that behind for the chance to work within the start-up scene and challenged herself to work across many projects, disciplines, and experience working with teams across the country of all sizes and makeups. Outside of work you can find Sara leading a Girls Who Code club, volunteer teaching Computer Science at the nearby high school and working with many non-profit groups to increase diversity in technology fields. When not working or volunteering she's building Legos all over again with her four beautiful children and man-child husband.
