    Aubrey Baker was surprised that a woman in her field was called out for not belonging.

    Still, Baker, 25, who writes software code at CQL, notes that when she was hired by the Grand Rapids firm in December, she was the only female web developer. Now, there are three.

    Her interest in computers developed between middle school and high school. She was the person in her house who took care of the routers and fixed the computers when there were issues.
