Software Engineer, VeriShip
Kansas City native, Rhia Dixon is a software engineer at a data-driven tech company where she creates back-end software applications using C#/.NET, Python, AWS and a variety of other tech. While she has always been a STEM girl and holds a B.S. in Physics, her journey to the world of tech kicked off in the summer of 2017 during a full-stack web development bootcamp at the University of Kansas-Edwards Campus. Rhia has immersed herself in the KC tech community by volunteering — both as a mentor, and as Diversity & Inclusion Director — for Kansas City Women in Technology, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing women in technology together and encouraging more women and girls to pursue careers in technology.
When she’s not writing code or volunteering, Rhia is chasing her toddler, making jewelry and crafty things for www.afromotif.com, binge-watching Marvel and Harry Potter movies, or spending time making memories with family and friends.
