About me

After serving students in music education and higher education (music instructor, career development and registrar roles) for 7 years, I was inspired by the work of the software developers who created the higher education software I used on a daily basis that so greatly impacted my students' lives. I decided to move into front-end engineering at Turing School of Software and Design to continue utilizing my skills of collaboration, problem-solving, learning, and passion for making others' lives better. I decided to shift my career to become one of those software developers that inspired me.

My passion is front-end web development and my expertise is in React, JavaScript, CSS, HTML, TypeScript, Test Driven Development, Cypress, and more. I seek to be continually growing in technologies and always bring my best self to the work I am doing.

I hope to never stop learning, growing, creating, and inspiring others in my career as a software developer. I am an avid runner, hiker, volunteer, and you can catch me on a local trail or at a coffee shop with friends on the weekends in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ.

hi-lo is a weather app designed to allow the user view weather in their area by searching by city and state. As the user types a city in, a drop down suggestion box loads and they can select a city from there. Once selected, they can click the search button and a card will pop up with the local city weather details. If they are looking to dive a little deeper into the forecast, the user can select the card and be directed to a new page that displays a more detailed forecast as well as the next 4 days. The forecasts persist on reload of the browser and can be deleted by user.

This multi-page weather application was built with team of 3, utilizing OpenWeather API and uses Google Maps Places Autocomplete. Built with React, React Router, and uses React Hooks. Self-taught TypeScript to implement in project. End to end testing with Cypress. Deployed on Heroku.

Rancid Tomatillos is a movie rating desktop application where users can see information regarding movie ratings and additional movie details as well as interact with the application in various ways. This application allows the user to additionally interact with the application by scrolling through to see various movie titles, seeing all movie titles sorted by rating, clicking a sort button to re-sort the movie titles, using a live search feature to search for a specific movie, and clicking on a movie poster to see additional movie details.

This was a paired project, our first React based project, and we were also required to test user flows using Cypress as well as implement Router in order to enhance the UI and flow of the application. This project was completely built in under 2 weeks.
