Bernina Gray, nDigitize

Bernina Gray is a Diné entrepreneur, mother and future impact investing catalyst. She is from Lukachukai, Arizona, a town located on the Diné reservation. In 2018, she embarked on a transformative path by quitting her job in customer service at a financial institution and enrolling in a coding boot camp with CNM Ingenuity, where she earned a certificate in Full-stack Web Development. This drive led her to a software developer internship, where she honed her skills and knowledge with a local non-profit. Bernina's journey continued with her transition to freelancing in both software development and brand design. Her hands-on approach and determination to teach herself propelled her forward.

In 2020, she achieved a significant milestone in her career by founding nDigitize, a tech company dedicated to digitizing Native-owned businesses. She initiated this venture during the pandemic, driven by her desire to help businesses establish their online presence. In the process, she accumulated five years of invaluable experience in brand design, software development, UX design, and technology-related consultations and solutions. She continues her work and will soon be offering digital products for Diné communities. Bernina's approach to education is ongoing and dynamic. This dedication to professional development is also evident in her participation in initiatives such as Project Dreamcatcher's Spring 2023 Cohort and Arizona State University's American Indian Policy Institute Indigenous Leadership Academy. Her passion extends to expanding her knowledge in the investment, data, and FinTech sectors, as she continues to create technology-driven solutions that empower and serve Native communities.
