I originally met Nikki Ricks after I got in touch with her following after an email that popped into my inbox that she had recently graduated from GA as a Developer. Nikki's background and path to being a Developer fascinated me. 

Nikki originally studied Town Planning but after working in the field and discovering that she was an intrapreneur she knew that she needed to get out of the office that she was in and throw herself into the startup world. 

Nikki worked with a number of startups but after spending more time in the space she wanted to be on the other side of the conversation and learn more  about the tech that powered a number of solutions. 

After some self learning she enrolled in a GA tech immersive and now is working as a fully fledged developer. On this path Nikki needed to get comfortable with the value of never ending learning in your job - being a developer. 

Nikki is curious and places great value in being on a path to always learning something new and trying new things - including being a stand up comedian!

We talked about being a women in tech, being curious and beating imposter syndrome plus bias in the workplace in gender and race.

About me: 

My name is Samantha McIntyre and after 30 years in business and technology - from starting out on the helpdesk to getting to and staying in the C suite, being on Executive boards and being a mother and entreprenuer!  I am passionate about helping women in their careers. 

What I have enjoyed the most in my roles is helping those around me succeed - particularly women!  

I have lead technology teams for some of the biggest businesses and brands in Australia and the world such as Tesco, Loreal, Coles, Woolworths and Sportsgirl.

So  if you're looking for someone who knows what it is like to be a women in business and technology plus being a mother and an entrepreneur then you've come to the right place.
