About Me

I am a full stack developer specializing in React, React Native, JavaScript, and Ruby with Python experience. I switched from a career in customer service as a technical writer, manager, and trainer to pursue coding.

Because of my technical writing and customer service background I deeply care about user experience and writing concise and easy-to-understand code. My approach as a coder is to treat others as I would like to be treated. This could be as simple as leaving clear comments in my code, choosing readability over cleverness, or thinking about how a visually impaired user would interact with my website. I'm passionate about learning and coding with empathy.

In my spare time, I enjoy jigsaw puzzles (the more challenging the better) and baking (last baking project was a chocolate orange souffle!). I devour fantasy books and watch lots of television. 30 Rock is one of my all time favorite shows and I'll take any opportunity I can find to reference or quote it.
