Before studying back-end web development at Turing, I was the assistant controller for Inland Seafood.
As an assistant controller, I was often working with large data sets including information about the company's big-picture financial situation, products, and operations. Eventually,, I thought: how do I link all of this information together, track and access key data efficiently, and recognize the potential effects of decisions before they are made?
Through work, I took a data analytics course focused on SQL, and this certainly helped me get closer to achieving my professional goals.
However, I soon realized I would need more than one data analytics course to get me to my goal of using modern technology for improved business insights, efficiency, and automation. This led me to pursue further education at Turing, where I am excited to build on the knowledge I already have and learn how to truly take things to the next level technologically.

How Are You Doing?
How Are You Doing? is a hybrid journaling/social media application where users can reflect on their feelings and check on their friends.
After signing in with Google OAuth, a user creatse a post by selecting an emotion and adding their current thoughts. A tone-analyzer API is then called, which analyzes the tone of their post.
All posts are private by default, but can be made public, which allows users friends to view them.
Frugal Foods is a bargain grocery shopping application. The user is met at the homescreen with a zipcode search, which shows and allows them to select stores within a user-defined radius.
The backend consumes the Target and Kroger store APIs and returns to the front-end the items searched for along with their prices at both stores. Users then add items (in theory, from whichever store has the item for a better price) to their cart, which is unique for each store. All endpoints utilize GraphQL.
