About me

I was first introduced to coding in college as part of my Mechanical Engineering curriculum. When I realized it required the same kind of sequential logic as my favorite game, chess, I knew it was something I wanted to incorporate into my work as an engineer.

After I graduated in Mechanical Engineering, I gained seven years of experience as an HVAC Project Engineer where I learned how to manage large, detail oriented projects and coordinate with cross-functional, multi-disciplinary design teams.

During that time, it became increasingly obvious to me that the tech sector would eventually impact all industries, and I decided to pursue a backend engineering certificate from the Turing School.

Now that I've graduated from the Turing School, I'm looking for a software engineering role where I can leverage some of the math and problem solving skills I gained as a Mechanical Engineer.
