About me

Hi there! 👋 I am an avid traveler who has lived and worked in multiple countries and a wide range of industries over the years. Through all of these changes, I have learned that I am a natural problem solver and nothing excites me more than the process of learning. Curiosity and a desire to continuously evolve have been the biggest motivators in my life; so after years of not feeling intellectually challenged at work I took the plunge into Software Engineering. I'm thrilled to have found a career that promotes life-long learning and utilizes critical thinking - a challenge I always look forward to.

My experience working on diverse teams at home and abroad has helped me become highly adaptable, open-minded, and empathetic when thrown into new environments. I love collaboration and I am always willing to listen and explore new ways to deliver the best possible results.

I am incredibly excited to find the right company to grow with as a software engineer and bring my communication and leadership skills to a team that encourages learning and embracing change!

About Moon Garden

Moon Garden helps you track your gardens and plants while offering recommendations based on the moon phase at every step of the way. We even threw in the weather, as a treat. Moon garden also has a land acknowledgement page, allowing users to get more information regarding the indigenous history of the land they garden on. I personally contributed heavily to FE repo UX/UI, consumed external/BE endpoints, learned bootstrap/ CSS/ HTML, and maintained front end documentation for the team.

Using Moon Garden, users are able to:

  • Register or sign-in using Google OAuth.
  • See the current lunar phase with the corresponding gardening recommendation.
  • Create Gardens to display on their Garden Dashboard.
  • Search for plants by keyword and receive growing recommendations, then add plants and their recommendation to a garden.
  • Add personal track planting details to each plant in a user's garden.
  • View land acknowledgments based on IP address location.
