About me

A software developer whose fourth language is coding 👩🏼‍💻

I'm a front-end engineer with a strong desire to make a difference in people's lives. Working as a teacher and RBT- Registered Behavioral Therapist allowed me to improve my problem-solving, interpersonal communication, situation management, empathy, and mentoring skills.

Because I am a language person, I turned to the software industry. As someone who is improving and attracted to continuous learning and innovation, as well as a flexible and positive team member, I was looking for new opportunities where I could use my imagination and problem-solving skill. In this manner, I enter a world where I can offer new opportunities to people, make their lives easier, create something for people, and show them what I dream of.

Treezy is a full-stack environmental application that allows a user to input their Colorado zip code and see what trees they are able to grow in their respective growing/hardiness zone and also more information about those trees, such as their mature height, growing speed, foliage color, and more! For the back-end, the data is hand-rolled in Google Sheets, used Express for the server, and PostgreSQL as the database. It deployed the API to Heroku for easy access to the endpoints instead of running the API locally. The front-end; is used React, React Router, Hooks, and more. It is used end-to-end (E2E) testing on Treezy using Cypress.
