About me

Howdy! I'm Paulina, a Brooklyn, NY based Spanish speaking Chicana software developer focused in front end engineering.

Throughout my 9 years of experience in the customer service industry, I honed my problem-solving skills and developed a strong ability to collaborate in teams. Toward the end of my time there I began to desire something bigger but I didn't know exactly what that was yet. I began to explore the idea of moving into software development in early 2022. After taking a workshop with Turing, I was sold on the idea of building user interfaces and inspired by the prospect of putting my creativity and problem solving skills to work. I then made the move to transition into this field and flex my muscles in a new and exciting way.

I'm excited to keep learning and become the best version of a developer I can be.
