About Me

A Dreamer, A Doer, A Thinker

I am a Software Developer

I enjoy being challenged and engaging with projects that require me to work outside my comfort and knowledge set. Continuing to learn new languages and frameworks are a welcome benefit to my growth as a developer.

I completed a hands-on Software Engineering Fellowship that focused on using Agile Methodologies to build maintainable, well-tested software.

I've facilitated a workshop titled "Harness the power of TDD" at the Women In Tech Summit.

I regularly attend community initiatives that invest in bringing tech to under-served communities, and encourage women and girls to pursue their interest in STEM.
