About me

An accountant-turned software developer, driven to sharpen my problem-solving abilities in the tech space. My past experiences have molded me into a detailed, action-oriented person with a constant intrigue of how and why things work the way they do.

I graduated from Metropolitan State University in Denver, with a b.s. in Accounting. I began as an accountant in a small team at a title company, and became proficient in different accounting softwares. There I developed a lot of my organization skills and became very detail oriented. My time as an accountant was one where I learned that I was able to pick up different softwares quickly, become self-motivated, and collaborate/ communicate efficiently. I came to the point where I wanted more education to further my growth, and went back to a previous passion in tech.

My goal has always been to find a career that I can be passionate about, and I have found passion in being a developer, because there are endless opportunities in self-growth and learning, and I can constantly make use of my previous experience to further my abilities.

This is a group project incorporating a new stretch tech, TypeScript. "Lynn's List" is an application for users to maintain and keep track of what restaurants they have been to, want to visit, and/or add to their personalized list. When a user first lands on the home page, they can view a list of individual restaurant information. A user is then able to create their own lists to add specific restaurants to. The user can also view more information about each restaurant by following the Yelp link for that restaurant. This application utilizes the Yelp Fushion API to bring the latest information on restaurants in Denver.
