Technology has followed me throughout my entire life
Participated in an experimental technology program with Apple Clamshell Laptops from 1st – 3rd grade. Fostered an interest in web design using SiteCentral. [Throwback Software Example]
Learned HTML and CSS while trying to edit personal profile layouts; later began creating and hosting my own websites while using Photoshop Elements 6.
Learned Java as my first compiled language in a Florida Virtual School AP Computer Science course. Refined my web design skills in an after school club. Selected my major for college.
College and Beyond
Obtained a job as a software developer and venture coach. Continued to refine my development skills and strategies through my freelance services.
Teaching: Technology has always been a strong passion in my life from a young age. I would like to utilize that knowledge to help others. As I thoroughly enjoy teaching and in fact I strengthen my learning and understanding of concepts as I teach.
Creating: Paired with my love of development also comes design. I enjoy the front and back end aspects of a project. I would love to continue to develop each of those skills.
Supporting Others: And finally, continuing to engage in events that aim to involve more girls and women in the S.T.E.M fields.
Full Stack: As I navigate my way through different experiences and opportunities, I want to explore the possibility of keeping my passion for working on the front and back end of a system, possibly as a full stack developer. If nothing else, pursing opportunities with organizations and clients that allow me to continue those skills.
Robust Projects: As school has come to its end I’m now available to dedicate more time to personal projects. I enjoy creating web apps and will pursue this as time moves forward.
Community: Continuing to network and find spaces that nurture innovation while supporting its members in their personal development.

What is your favorite project, that you’ve worked on so far?
My favorite project so far has been working with a student management system. I’ve enjoyed it the most so far because it really got me into that front and back end experience. Most of my professional projects are WordPress based so it was great to start building that familiarity with MVC frameworks like CodeIgniter.
What type of endeavor are you most excited to work on next?
I’m most excited to create an MVC web app of my very own. I have a few ideas bouncing around, but I’ll probably start small. With a scheduling app or a check in app and move forward from there once I feel more comfortable with the different aspects I can accomplish.
