About me

In the software industry I am excited to bring all of my skills and strengths to a team that is dedicated to solving problems and impacting the lives of those we work with in a positive way.

I am trained and comfortable with working with people from all walks of life, and have a knack for meeting people where they are at. Solving complex and multi-faceted problems through team work and analytical thinking are two of my strongest skills, as I believe there is no problem that is unsolvable, especially as a team.

While working in the Addiction and Mental Health industry, I was able to impact the lives of over 50 individuals, helping them to reach their potential, overcome their struggles, and build new, meaningful lives. Working as the Warehouse Manager for Ace on the Fax, I used my organizational and delegation skills to increase sales year over year and decrease product loss and decay.

Phast Phood was the Mod 3 Consultancy project. Phast Phood is a web application that allows users to quickly find and view recipes without a long life story to scroll through before getting to the actual recipe. Phast Phood has a Ruby on Rails front end and a Ruby on Rails back end. The back end application consumes two external APIs, serializes them, and exposes them to the front end application. The backend also is home to our User database which also houses the users Saved Recipes, which is exposed via CRUD API endpoints. The front end application consumes the back end APIs, and is home to the user experience. The front end allows users to sign in via Google Oauth2, search for and save recipes, and get a cocktail recommendation.

Over the first week of intermission between Mod 3 and Mod 4 I dove headfirst into a React youtube tutorial to familiarize myself with React. What started as just doing an hour long tutorial turned into several days of research, debugging, and learning way more than expected about React. The site utilizes Routes from react-router-dom to have several pages. Each page contains something unique, whether custom animations or an an email.js form for users to email me directly. This application was very challenging but ultimately a ton of fun.
