About me

I'm a life-long learner who values communication and diversity.

My background is in linguistics and foreign languages, and I became interested in software development while experiencing first-hand the digitization of the life sciences translation industry.

I enjoy software development because I love learning, being creative, and solving problems. I became a developer because I believe I have a perspective that is needed for building the tools of the future.

In addition to my technical skills, I bring experience in project management and leadership. In my next role, I'd love to work with a positive, supportive community of people contributing to technology that improves the lives of its users - regardless of identity, ability, or geography.

Latitude-Longitude Bingo is an educational game helping students learn to read a map using latitude and longitude coordinates. It was built by a team of three front-end developers using JavaScript, CSS, HTML, React, Express, Knex, and PostgreSQL; tested using Cypress; and deployed on Heroku. Building the back-end was a stretch goal for the front-end team, and we're happy with the successful final product. A win for me individually was building the game logic so that when the student hits the "Bingo!" button, the game board is evaluated and an appropriate message displays. This was also a special project for me personally, as it brought to fruition an idea that my (retired geography teacher) dad and I wanted to create since I first started learning to code.

TravelTracker is an application for travel agency clients to login, view their past, present, and future trips, and request new trips. I built it individually using JavaScript, Sass, and HTML; tested it with Mocha and Chai; and ensured accessibility using Lighthouse. The accessibility goal was very dear to my heart, and it was a great win to see the Lighthouse audit at 100%. I also enjoyed making it beautiful with Sass.
