Hi, I’m Frances!

I’m a Latina (Peruvian-American) who engineers solutions to make your working life more simple, more pleasant and more productive.

Or better yet, I’m a unicorn (1% of women in tech identify as Latina) who is working for another unicorn (Slack). πŸ¦„

Might have something to do with human nature in general, though, so interpret it as you will.
