About the Speakers:
Taylor Daugherty – Senior Software Engineer, iOS
After graduating pre-med from Cornell University, Taylor started her career as a first grade teacher on the south side of Chicago. It wasn’t until she met actual engineers while working in sales at an ed-tech startup that she decided she wanted to be the one building the product. After attending a coding bootcamp, she joined Disney and helped launch the Movies Anywhere app. She is currently a Senior iOS Engineer working the core experience of the meditation and mindfulness app, Headspace, and has recently started to explore AR and computer vision technologies through consulting work on a fitness app. As someone passionate about empowering underrepresented groups in technology, Taylor is involved in the organization 9 Dots, which teaches computer science to elementary students in LAUSD, and is also teaching a unit on app development to students at her alma mater, Westridge School.

Monica is a mobile engineer at Headspace where she co-leads the Android team. She graduated from Hack Reactor in 2016 and loves working with and supporting engineers from bootcamps and other non-traditional backgrounds.

Monica lives in downtown Los Angeles with her partner, their cat and an ever growing number of plants.
