About me

To me, life is a University full of knowledge. My interest in software development is sparked by my zest for learning, being naturally curious and fascinated with new technology. I have over 20+ years in customer service, management, project planning, problem solving and strategic thinking. I loved my career, being able to take a problem, analyze it and find a solution for my customer. But it’s never too late if life to take a chance to find your personal success. I will bring my understanding of the customer as well as my excellent interpersonal skills to the developer world. To my future employer, I can help deliver a product that is accessible, effective, beautiful and easy for your customer to understand.

Palette Picker is a color generator to assist in coming up with the right color palette for whatever you're working on. Users can generate a color palette, save it for future projects, edit/update saved projects and color palettes, and delete projects and palettes. So let you crafty side come out and find your perfect color palette!This was a paired project where we planned, built and tested the backend and frontend.

My areas of focus: I took on the project management role for this project. I created the frontend wireframe, the backend schema and created project boards for both. For the backend I created mock data, did the initial migration and seeded the database with Knex and PostgreSQL. On the frontend side I created the API calls methods, tested those methods, did a majority of the styling using SASS, fetched the data to display and finished actions and reducers testing.

Jeopardy is a game that we all know and love. This space themed version was a 8 day group project. It is completely interactive and fun for all users. The challenge was to solidify our understanding of object-oriented programming (OOP) principles by building out a game, to work with classes to build a program at a larger scale. Also, a chance for us to build out a program based on user stories - which is more aligned to what we can expect to see working with product managers in a production environment. I really took on a lot of the SCSS/SASS and animation for this project. As well as getting more exposure to using jQuery.

Ballroom Beats took 3rd place out of the whole school in Turing's Demo Night Competition. This was a combined backend and frontend group project. Ballroom Beats is a React-Native app that allows users to choose the steps to a dance they would like to learn along with the song of choice. This app allows you to select from three types of popular ballroom dances (Waltz, Salsa, and Bachata) and practice the step sequences on your phone, with your hands.  The goal of this app is to help the brain remember the rhythms and sequences necessary to perform the dance.

My areas of focus: I self taught myself React Native and Expo for this project. Research and understanding documents is one of my strong suits. I found Expo had the expo-av library where we could utilize the universal module for Audio for playing the music. Also, I found that React Native has a built in Animated API that we could use to time the animations, in a sequence to a beats duration. I researched and setup the application's React Navigation and  React Navigation Stack to transition between components. Provided a lot of CSS design and helped with getting the app being able to switch from portrait to landscape with use of React Native Extended Stylesheet.

Ridgecreek Plumbing & Gas is a company in Washington State. They came to me to recreate a website that had some "wow!" The website is very informative and highlights the work they have done and the services they can provide. Technology Used:ReactHTML5SCSS/CSS3CSS3 AnimationsJestEnzyme

My areas of focus:
This was a contract job to create a custom website for a client. I was tasked with all the pre-build, wireframe and design. This entire job was done remotely. I worked closely with the client to get content and make changes as necessary. This website is fully accessible and responsive. The site is under construction and is temporarily deployed with Vercel until I get the some additional content and final approval from my client. When ready I will be deploying the site with GoDaddy.
