For the last 15 months I’ve been working along side Coss Marte, and ConBody as we build out a prison-themed bootcamp inspired by the regimen he used to lose 70 lbs in a prison cell, and that has now helped thousands of NY’ers #dothetime.

I make it a habit to only work on projects that grab me, inspire me, and change me -- all the while, changing the world. And ConBody is no exception. Once again, I'm incredibly proud to be leading a project that has such significant impact to the larger culture we live in today. But these huge, meaningful projects take funds and friends -- and that's where you come in! 

You’ve got a hundred fundraisers in your inbox, but I assure you, this one is different. We've got 170 bunkees who have pledged over $15k, are committing to #dothetime for over 60 months, and over 15 scholarship funds created for in-need students dedicated to changing their fitness lifestyle.
Read=join the club!

Our vision for this campaign is to take ConBody to the next level. We want a dedicated space -- but more than just a workout studio. We envision a community cornerstone. A safe place where we can have classes 24/7, where we can host dedicated events around core issues such as prison reform and healthy lifestyles, create core life-skill and technology training sessions with men and women returning home, and most importantly, where we can find a place of freedom in this crazy concrete jungle.

*This is so much more than a simple fundraiser for me!!*

I’m hosting an event on Thursday October 1st, so make sure you get on the guest list by being the next to contribute. I'm going to be celebrating a very, very special BIRTHDAY! (It's not every day that we turn 16+21!) 

Some of you may remember how sentimental my birthday is, as it's the day that Bella Minds launched our (very successful) Plum Alley crowdfunding campaign. I tend not to celebrate with the traditional dinner out, or drinks-filled fun times, and this year is no different. This year, I am dedicating my birthday to a group of people hustling hard to change the world.

We’re raising $25k in 25 days, and CANNOT hit our goals without you.
Can I count on you to make a dream a reality?  Make your pledge now, learn more about the project and it’s founder, trainers and incredible mission, and I'll see you at the party!

You might have been wondering where I’ve been over the past few months. No, I haven’t been watching Broad City, hibernating in sweatpants every day (well, maybe there was that one day, but onward!).

I’ve mainly been heads down, thinking about the year (or five) ahead, and quickly determined it was high-time the original NYTechWomen community started thinking even bigger, and expanded its impact for women interested in tech. So, alongside the Bella Minds team, I've decided to make a big decision and fold the NYTechWomen events calendar into the broader reach (and mission) of Bella Minds.

bellaminds.com

We're making this move simply because it was the most logical decision--the missions were highly overlapped, the teams were shared, and one directly engages the other. Many have even said, "What took you so long?"

What was once a small idea, turned great side project, is now a national movement and I'm ecstatic to watch it grow even more.

Through Bella Minds, we’re going to begin this new chapter with multiple celebrations!

We'll be hosting a special edition #ManicMonday next week, an International Women's Day #SocialSunday Brunch on March 8th, and follow it up through the month by offering our proven, impactful Mastermind program to a select group of NYC-based, ambitious members. Our Mastermind takes traditional NYTechWomen events to the next level of making meaningful connections. It is more than a handshake, a business card and some small talk - it’s a killer combination of trust, education, action and accountability.

As always, we will be keeping events small, but meaningful. Get your RSVP in now to for the opportunities that lie ahead (why not all three, right?). We’ll be announcing more details during these events, and we look forward to answering all your questions when we see you!

Getting hitched in #NYC the week of June 1-5? Stop by the #NikonWeddingTruck.  We’ll have a photo studio set up inside the truck to capture the joy of newlyweds, and each couple will get their pictures, courtesy of @NikonUSA, to keep and share with their loved ones.  Look for the "underdressed-for-the-occasion" guy with a #D750.  #IAMGenerationImage #ElopeNYC #Free #Photos More info: http://goo.gl/nqjlNH

Introduction

Early Bird Gets The Worm: Talk to me about: Technology, Women's Studies, Economic Development, Small Business, Remote Employment, Ageism, Sexism, Education, Crowdfunding, & Analytics.  Lover of yoga, cooking brunch and sunrises. If you really love me you’ll take me anywhere that serves great wine.

I am equal parts social engineer, digital analyst and profession-focused educator. I strive to create an open environment that inspires and connects people. My extensive achievements as Founder of NYTechWomen and Bella Minds and as former Senior Data Analyst for comScore give me a great combination of corporate and startup branding, analytic and relationship experience.

I love being a redhead: I will always be the fiery & adventurous readhead with tons of passion for life and all it has to offer.

I love being a geek: As long as it does what I want it to do, when I want it to--I'm a fan. 

I love learning: Simply put, I want information to have a surviving value. 

I love to teach: My main focus is teaching technology to non-techies.

I love finding the answer: The destination is fun, but it's all about the journey. 

I love data: I have an undying thirst for information and the data that generates it.

Another hipster joint that over promises and under delivers. On everything. I'd love to judge them on a dozen meals, but you can't even get a to-go meal in under two hours. Their kitchen process is an utter shame to the restaurant business.

There is nothing about this food that's as advertised here. Zero thick crust and zero "midwest-style" (what one would naturally assume is Chicago deep dish). Probably more to blame their inability to update their online presence than cook food, but still incredibly disappointing upon arrival.
