Today I have the pleasure of introducing Sasha, Stack Exchange’s newest community manager. Sasha’s diverse academic and professional experience shows her passion for continuous learning and for empowering communities to succeed.
Sasha comes to us from the nonprofit and public service world, most recently working as a community organizer for an urban public library system. She is particularly excited to be in a role where she can translate in-person community building skills into working with virtual communities. Much of Sasha’s focus will be on helping subcommunities come together and grow on Stack Overflow, as the Collectives product continues to evolve.
With an academic background in Linguistics and African American studies, Sasha most recently began studying Computer Science. As you might expect, she’s used Stack Overflow frequently as a resource. She’s never needed to actually ask a question, because she’s always found that someone else had already asked exactly what she needed – often before she had even fully formed the question in her head!
Outside of work and study, Sasha enjoys baking, especially sourdough (her starter is named Karl). She spends a lot of time listening to audiobooks, and is always looking for new sci-fi recommendations. Sasha is also a budding (pun intended) plant mom, and is hoping to be a dog mom in the near future.
In her short time here, Sasha has already impressed the team and we know she’ll be an asset to the Stack Exchange community. Welcome, Sasha!
