I discovered a passion for coding years ago while studying Computer Science. After college I transitioned into a career in office administration, where I worked across multiple industries, building a commitment to customer centered problem solving and a desire to find ways to support and improve the efficiency of teams.
After years working in office administration, I felt I had progressed as far as I could, and wanted to change to a more challenging and rewarding career, where my love of problem solving could be combined with my desire to help others.
This brought me back to my passion for coding, which led me to enroll at Turing School of Software and Design, as a backend software engineering student. I'm excited to combine the strengths I've gained from office administration with the skills I'm learning as a software development student to be a great asset to your team!

Web application to make borrowing or exchanging books with others easier. Users can add books to their own digital bookshelf, as well as search the bookshelves of other users for books they are interested in. Bookmarked was created as our final capstone project, working with both a front and back end team. The backend team chose to use GraphQL to create the API for the front end to query, which required us to research and learn it quickly. We also created mock servers on Postman to ensure that we didn't slow down the front end team while we worked on building our queries and mutations. Both the front end and back end team collaborated continuously through all phases of development using Miro, slack, and Github Issues.
Critterism is an animal trivia application with an ulterior cause that seeks to persuade animal welfare without the Sarah McLachlan guilt trip soundtrack.
Users can sign in with Google OAuth and play a 10-question trivia game with fun animal facts. Upon completion, users are granted the option to explore animal and wildlife organizations that they can donate to.
The frontend application makes API calls to the backend.The backend is responsible for receiving requests from the frontend, submitting requests to the Every.org and Open Trivia Database APIs, and return digestible JSON data for the frontend to consume.
