Alyssa Ozer

Managing Director

Alyssa moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University and quickly realized this was the city for her! Atlanta was the perfect place to begin Alyssa’s post-graduate life, due to its cultural diversity, a wide range of great community initiatives to support, and a robust food scene. Since then, having worked in various industries throughout her career from insurance to education, property development to start ups and business consulting, one thing stood out – a constant connection to technology.

I’m passionate about supporting women of all ages and career levels in their growth and feel strongly about helping women explore careers in technology. I’m looking forward to connecting with the talented women here and exploring the beautiful city of Atlanta”

Abbe Wiesenthal

Editorial Manager

After 19 years at Warner Media, I took some time off to fulfill my dream of creating a website. to promote Independent Bookstores ( I also become a Founding Member of the Lola. I’m now actively searching for the next adventure in my career!

What do you want people to know about you personally? I’m a booklover first and foremost; I’m also an avid gardener. I’m passionate about encouraging and assisting women and girls to be able to achieve their dreams without being constrained by gender.

What made you want to be part of GiT Atlanta? Having worked in the technology side of the business for so long, I got tired of being the “only woman in the room”! I have also seen the benefits of encouraging young women to pursue their dreams in STEM roles. I want to do everything I can to make sure that girls are never held back from realizing their dreams of playing important, meaningful roles in tech
