MY WORK

About me

PROFESSIONAL PATH

I am a Front-End Engineer because of a desire to help end-users achieve their goals. In my work I enjoy working with JavaScript, thinking about data representation, and thinking about layouts for responsive design. Before transitioning to software development, I took many online courses, and coding bootcamp because I value competency. I was a Technical Writer in Software for a decade. I wrote for users, administrators, developers. In addition to writing online help and API docs, I helped with usability testing and QA.
