Welcome Sarah :)
I applaud your intent to "give something back". I think that's part of why most
of us are here (only part though - its also fun!)

Maybe you could get involved in working with the Debian Perl team. I am sure
they would appreciate one more person to squash bugs, test fixes, update
documentation or whatever. I don't know if you are familiar with the
debian-perl mailing list , but it seems pretty active, so it would be a good
place to start interacting with the Debian Perl community.
Just don't forget Debian Women, though :) We are pleased to have you.
