Cristina Veale is a web developer for Cardinal Solutions and Chapter Leader for GDI-CLT. After previously working as an IT Recruiter, Cristina noticed how deprived the market was for females in technology. She made it her mission to become a developer by dedicating months of self-study, networking, and a coding boot camp, to be in the position she's in today. With a passion for advocating women in technology, Cristina became the Chapter Leader for GDI Charlotte in 2015. In her free time, she loves to travel, eat sushi, practice yoga, and cuddle with her sweet cat, Luna.
