Sammie Beebe is a transplant to Vermont from Illinois and Oregon, but has fallen in love with the state. She graduated from Champlain College and since has been working in Project Management at a growing software company. Sammie loves what Girl Develop It does because she wants more women to feel empowered to break into tech if that is where their passion lies. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring the outdoors of Vermont and New Hampshire with her husband, crafts and brewing beer!
Lina is brand new to Burlington and found her way to GDI right away — she came for the coding and stayed for the judgement-free learning environment! With a background in experiential and environmental teaching, Lina knows a good education climate when she sees it, and thinks GDI is exactly such a place. She is excited about seeing women pursue their passions in diverse variety of fields, including her own areas of interest: computers, bicycles (which she is learning to build and repair), and woodturning.
