Kirsten Henagin

Kirsten Henagin

Kirsten Henagin hails from small town, central Minnesota. She joined the Fargo-Moorhead community in 2012 to study Marketing and Global Studies at Concordia College. Kirsten is now a Sr. Associate at Eide Bailly in their Technology Advisory Services practice. In her job, she helps business leaders navigate the changing technology market and make informed decisions about their processes, organization, and their technology investments.

Kirsten started volunteering with Girl Develop It in the fall of 2017 by organizing the chapter's social events. Kirsten chose to volunteer with Girl Develop It because it creates a space for women and non-binary adults in the community to learn, challenge themselves, and support each other when trying something new.

When she isn't working, she spends time with her boyfriend, Justin and rescue mutt, Rory.

The Instructors

Shannon Wiedman

Shannon Wiedman

Shannon works as the Product Design Director at CoSchedule. CoSchedule is an editorial calendar for content marketers that schedules, organizes, and manages content all in one place. Shannon is a web designer turned front-end developer that believes design is more than what something looks like, it is about how it functions for the user. After designing websites for many years, Shannon decided she wanted to start building the websites she was designing. While learning to code she came across Girl Develop It and her curiosity in this program led her to get involved and start the Fargo Chapter with Megan Otto.

When she isn’t teaching code she likes to hang out with her pups Beans and Sully and her husband Adam.
