About me

When I discovered the combo of creativity and problem solving that Front-End Development offers, I looked no further!

Upon graduation from CSU with a Business Marketing degree in hand, I thought doors would open to creative roles that I would love. While I did get to stretch my creative brain in such a role, there was something missing. Over time I wanted to learn something more technical, and my search for another career began.

Nearing the end of my marketing role I got to work on a Word Press site and that’s when it happened; the instant gratification of solving more technical problems fanned a flame that maybe, just maybe, I too could be a super nerd and learn to code. From here I vowed to not doubt my ability to learn technical skills and enrolled in Turing a few months later.

Now being able to build a website from scratch, something I’d never thought possible, learning to code has been one of my greatest accomplishments. Progressing through many projects at Turing I’ve learned tech including JavaScript, HTML, CSS, React, Router, Mocha/Chai, Cypress and more, and I am currently learning TypeScript and GraphQL.

Treat Streets was created using GraphQL in the React.js framework. This Halloween-themed application is meant to give trick-or-treaters and parents more information about participating homes in their area. The application allows users to view a map of houses in their area that are registered to be giving out candy for Halloween and to register their own house to be added to the map.
