We’re thrilled to be hosting a Bay Area Girl Geek Dinner Wednesday, February 17 at our San Francisco foodhub.

Join us for an evening of talks, mingling and amazing local food prepared by our in-house chefs.

We’re hosting at our foodhub in the San Francisco Bay View where we combine product development, marketing and business operations with the daily activities of receiving, packing and delivering food.

We’ll cover topics ranging from data science, user research and agile software engineering to identifying and tasting the many varieties of citrus in season right now. We’re going to use a Science Fair format where you rotate through presentations, discussions and activities leaving plenty of opportunity for questions and conversation.

Speakers

Lei Huang

Lei Huang (Shopping Engineering Manager, Good Eggs)

Lei loves cooking, eating and talking about all things food. Learning about where that food comes from truly makes her feel happier and more connected to the people and environment around me. She is excited to help Good Eggs bring about a world where everyone gets to experience the fun of being closer to their food growing community.

Cordelia Hyland

Cordelia Hyland (User Researcher, Good Eggs)

Like many other Eggs, Cordelia grew up growing veggies in her family’s backyard vegetable garden and cooking with the bounty. She has worked on farms and in community gardens, teaching garden education and community nutrition. Cordelia was drawn to Good Eggs by her hope to support local agriculture and healthy eating on a national scale. She loves the connections Good Eggs is growing between local foodmakers and food eaters! There’s nothing more beautiful than community bonds!

Claudia Gold

Claudia Gold (Data Scientist, Good Eggs)

As a child of parents from New Orleans, Claudia has been surrounded by food and cooking from a very early age. She has always believed that the best foods are the ones prepared by hand and naturally, and is am thrilled to help make it easier for others to enjoy delicious local eating. Good Eggs truly has unlimited potential, because the concept can be applied anywhere!

Joyce Ding

Joyce Ding (Data Analyst, Good Eggs)

Joyce spent a lot of time between ages three to six on her great-grandma’s farm in China. It was a farm with many kinds of crops and animals. She raised her own pet chickens and helped her uncle tend cows. That was the time when her affection for nature, animals, farmers, and local communities first started. Now she’s happily working at a company that strives to nurture all of these things that she deeply cares about.

Aley Hanson

Aley Hanson (Designer, Good Eggs)

Aley is a San Francisco native, eternal optimist, and mother nature’s biggest fan. She is blessed to support local food in the best way she knows how: through visual design. When she is not designing for Good Eggs’ awe-inspiring farmers and foodmakers, you’ll find her in a tree, practicing the art of smiling for no reason.

Erin Clancy

Erin Clancy (Grocery Purchaser, Good Eggs)

Erin’s specialty is her enthusiasm for and knowledge of cheese. She spends days off researching cheese and different cheese shops all across the country. She has been fortunate enough to visit many cheese farms as well as meet some of the cheese makers through both work and cheese festivals.

Jillian Becerra

Jillian Becerra (Ops Manager, Good Eggs)

“All sorrows are less with bread.” This quote from Miguel de Cervantes perfectly captures the importance of both great literature and delicious food in Jilian’s life. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Jillian immediately found intrinsic beauty in the simplicity of a process that supplies people with nourishing, local food. Unfortunately, the benefits of local food have been restricted to those who have access to these markets and have the financial means to enter them. It’s her dream to begin bridging this gap through a combination of equitable access, awareness and availability across all communities.
