About the Speakers:
Taylor Daugherty - Senior Software Engineer, iOS
After graduating pre-med from Cornell University, Taylor started her career as a first grade teacher on the south side of Chicago. It wasnt until she met actual engineers while working in sales at an ed-tech startup that she decided she wanted to be the one building the product. After attending a coding bootcamp, she joined Disney & helped launch the Movies Anywhere app. She is currently a Senior iOS Engineer working the core experience of the meditation & mindfulness app, Headspace, & has recently started to explore AR & computer vision technologies through consulting work on a fitness app. As someone passionate about empowering underrepresented groups in technology, Taylor is involved in the organization 9 Dots, which teaches computer science to elementary students in LAUSD, & is also teaching a unit on app development to students at her alma mater, Westridge School.
Monica Grandy - Senior Software Engineer, Android
Monica is a mobile engineer at Headspace where she co-leads the Android team. She graduated from Hack Reactor in 2016 & loves working with & supporting engineers from bootcamps & other non-traditional backgrounds. She is a co-host & producer of impostHER podcast & hopes to bring more humility, vulnerability & openness to the seemingly intimidating world of tech. Monica lives in downtown Los Angeles with her partner, their cat & an ever growing number of plants.
