Non-traditional is my modus operandi: I come from a dietetics background, changed careers in my thirties, and am a girl who loves to code. Armed with my magna cum laude degree in one hand and years of successful work experience in another, I evoked my motto "Do Scary Things" to quit my not-quite-programming email developer job, crush a women's coding bootcamp, and travel the world for a few months by myself. And I also became an employed software engineer in the process! I love building upon the web's beauty and utility and am passionate about integrating my client-focused background with client-side development to create interactive and user-friendly applications. I am also fascinated with the power of backend development and enjoy building from the ground up.
