Today we have Katrina Walker, Founder & CEO of CodeOp. Originally from San Francisco, she now resides in Barcelona. She initially started her career as a social worker and later obtained a Master's in Cultural Anthropology. Then at age 30, while she had a great job she still had a desire to do something more. She had always had a passion for computers and technology and it was re-sparked when she was introduced to Google Analytics. That led to her attending a Data Science program in Barcelona and eventually led to her launching an all-women coding bootcamp. Katrina has had a very interesting journey and shows us it is never too late to get into tech.
