Flawless Hacks

Flawless Hacks is a nonprofit that hosts an annual Beyoncé-themed hackathon for women in New York City. I co-founded the 501c3-status nonprofit in 2016 with Kaitlin Gu.

In our two-year run, we have brought together more than 400 technical women for a day of keynote speakers, beginner- to advanced-level workshops and mentorship. Most exciting, almost half of Flawless Hacks attendees are at their first hackathon. Outside of the annual event, the Flawless Hacks team attends technical conferences and holds workshops about hackathon organizing.

To learn more about Flawless Hacks, visit our website or facebook page. And we'll see you there in April 2018!

That means loads of clinical and financial data, which we connect up to improve our clients' practice performance and share intelligence across the network. My focus is dashboards to make that healthcare data meaningful and actionable.
