Earlier this year I had an eye opening experience at the UC Davis/Sac State game jam. This first time mom tried to live her former busy, dedicated life by bringing her six-week old baby to the event and quickly realized that, among other things, changing a diaper in a college bathroom with no changing station is not the best start to raising a little human. It was that day when I came to the conclusion that I will no longer be able to commit to the Sacramento Developer Collective like I have in years past where I served as the Vice Chair of IGDA Sacramento, the marketing/outreach coordinator and the co-organizer for the Sacramento Indie Arcade. For the time being, I am stepping away from an active leadership role to focus on my family.
