About me

Watching my mother learn to ride the unicycle in her 40s showed me I could learn to do anything, if my heart was in it. I took this sort of drive with me when I started my own e-commerce business after high school. One of my favorite aspects of running that website was monitoring the fluctuations in different metrics such as average engagement time as I made small adjustments over time. I've carried this feedback and improvement mindset with me to every professional and personal endeavor I've had since and have become a magnificent shape - shifter.

Knowing I can learn and improve at anything, I decided to go after what I am most excited about in life: technology. I went to the backend program at Turing because I see the potential in this industry and want to create tools to improve people’s lives. I see a more accessible future and I have an undeniable drive to amaze and inspire.
