About me

Empathy for the end user is and has always been crucial to my success. I love creating something tangible.

In my previous career I was the lead designer and furniture expert on award winning commercial projects. Detailed specifications, space planning in AutoCAD, client presentations and every detail in between taught me how to break down large goals into manageable steps.

My love for creative problem solving and exploring new perspectives has driven me in my journey from Interior Design to Front End Software Development.

As a lifelong learner, I love the challenge that software development provides. I wish to work for a company that prioritizes mental health and provides support for women and other minorities in tech!
