About me

Coming from a career in nursing has given me the overwhelming need to make applications that is intuitive to use and respect the human experience. In the field, I learned paying extra attention to my patients helped them feel at ease and I was able to provide the best care that I can. So I made it my mission to learn everything I could about my patients to craft a personal relationship and care routines to provide the best experience possible in a healthcare setting. I got so much fulfillment doing so that I need to care for my users in the same way.

I was first introduced to the process of Front End Engineering from taking up a coding course while working, and I was immediately hooked on the process of learning how to solve complex problems while still being able to provide care for the user's experience. So as a software engineer, I will use my experience crafting personal experiences for patients, and my aptitude for problem solving to create applications that are intuitive and unique.
