Collision Conference in NOLA

In April 2018, myself and a few other boss babes were gifted complimentary tickets to Collision Conference for being women in tech. Yeehaw! We had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans to connect with movers and shakers in the tech industry, explore the city, and of course, enjoy some of the world’s best beignets. YUM.

The conference itself was rich with content, but my favorite part of the trip was connecting with the other incredible women in our group and taking in the stunning sights of NOLA. New Orleans is one of those cities that is better seen instead of described, so here is: New Orleans in Photos.

 These ladies were the best adventure pals, along with being incredibly inspiring lady-bosses.
