Amanda
Amanda H
Amanda is a blog contributor and Coding Club member. Coding Club has a very dear place in her heart as she cherishes cheering on Nerdy Girls friends as they find their passion for programming. For her love of code and community, she helps run the OKC.js user group and Thunder Plains JavaScript Conference. In recent years she has volunteered at conferences such as 200OK, RedDirt.js, and as a Committee Member for SQL Saturday #90 and #125. In May 2013 Amanda received her Associates of Arts and Science diploma in Computer Information Systems after acing her capstone by coding a totally sweet video game. She works as an enterprise CQ5/AEM CMS developer in Norman, but her heart belongs to Orchard CMS. In her free time she enjoys attending the science-fueled UCO Skeptics and AOK meetup group.

Marisa
Marisa
Marisa works as a technical writer by day, and a blogger and hopeful novelist by night. Someday she may get a job at a library, but is content to hoard her own books at home for the time being. She joined Nerdy Girls to connect with some smart and fun ladies who share similar interests. Despite being obsessed with time travel, she readily admits that she will never understand it. Marisa’s hobbies include running, lifting weights, trying to teach her dog MMA, and binge-watching television shows on Netflix. Twitter | Website

Erica
Erica
Erica is a word nerd of epic proportions. She freely acknowledges that she has an unwholesome attachment to the dictionary, especially odd little niche dictionaries on idioms and slang. Although she loves just about every form of the written word, she divides her time between the near polar opposites of technical writing and novel writing (with an occasional whimsical splash into free verse). Perpetually curious, she reads books and articles by the dozen. If it were possible to give up sleep in favor of more reading time, she would. She devotes her spare time to a wide variety of hobbies, including DIY home projects, cooking, gardening, gaming and crochet. Erica also enjoys watching an occasional hockey or college football game.
