About me

Having taught English in China for four years, as well as working as an administrative assistant and helping users navigate the site, I excel in considering what is "user-friendly" to the people I help. As a front-end developer, I practice those same principles today to optimize user experience for both my colleagues and the audience - whether they be students or clients. I am someone who loves collaboration, is passionate about adding value to the user experience, and thrives in a fast paced environment.

This app seeks to aggregate relevant data of Coronavirus infection rates on a by-country basis. Users will be able to view up to date global numbers of how many cases have been confirmed, recovered, and deceased. In addition to being able to find a list of all countries with the most recent updates, users can also click on individual countries to find more detailed information about their cases, as well as add those countries to a 'watch-list'.

This was a paired project that was designed to create a movie review app. In this project, we designed an interactive web page for users view a collection of movies and their details. A user will be able to log into their account, favorite movies, comment on movies, and submit a rating for a specific movie. The user is also able to view their comments and comments made by different users. The user also has the ability to delete a prior ratings on any movie they have reviewed in the past.This project will demonstrate our understanding and implementation of React class based and functional components, props, state, testing suites, HTML/CSS UX/UI design, ability to write modular, reusable code that follows SRP, JSX and the ability to follow spec/comp to complete a functional app.
