Everyone’s a geek about something
Hi, We’re Geeks!
And we’re proud of it. Geeks are just people who are passionate about something and want to share it with others. One of our passions is helping people overcome barriers to create a new path forward with a career in tech.
Our team is made up of innovators, creative thinkers and people who geek out over seeing others fulfill their dreams. Our team members contribute to our forward-thinking, friendly culture.
At The Geek Foundation, we want to see more people find a passion for computer science and tech fields, regardless of their gender, race or any other classification. Keep reading to learn more about our team and our supporters.

Maranda, born and raised in Springfield, has been programming at local businesses for 9 years. After getting her start building web-based insurance software at Intuitive Web Solutions, she joined the team at award-winning design & development studio Mostly Serious. She now serves as Director of Engineering, leading a team of web developers.
While in the Computer Science department at Missouri State University, Maranda first found a desire to bring diversity to the technology field. Until her senior year, she was the only woman in her courses. She felt welcomed and encouraged by school faculty and knew that other women could enter the field and succeed as well. Her passion led her to join forces with Krista to create The Geek Foundation.
Outside of web development and The Geek Foundation, Maranda enjoys practicing and teaching yoga, singing with her band and cooking healthy vegetarian meals.
