Statement of Interest

To learn, leverage, and help evolve.




Julia is not your typical engineer. She started her career in networking and eventually shifted to systems engineering. The DevOps movement lead her into software development and the operationalization of software due to the need to automate large scale systems deployments. She is experienced in conveying an operational perspective while bridging that with requirements, and doesn’t mind getting deep down into code to solve a problem.

She is an active core contributor and leader in OpenStack Ironic project, which is a project she feels passionate about due to many misspent hours in data centers deploying hardware. Prior to OpenStack, Julia contributed to the Shared Learning Infrastructure and worked with large scale litigation database systems.




I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Bare Metal Provisioning Service (Ironic)
