About Me:

How did I learn to code?

I'm a self-taught developer and alumna of LaunchSchool.com, an online school for web developing. At Launch School, I put in 1500+ hours over 18 months and completed hundreds of exercises with Ruby, JavaScript, and SQL. I aced all 11 assessments, demonstrating a solid understanding of concepts such as variable scopes, closures, inheritance, regular expressions, and this.

Since then I've explored Ruby on Rails, Vue.js, Express.js, and React.js, and created my own projects with each of these frameworks. I've utilized various tutorials, read a lot of documentation, and asked questions. I'm excited to continue learning about these tools and others, and I'm eager to put my skills to work as part of a great team.

Why programming?

I have always enjoyed the challenge of building things from scratch - where "scratch" is anything from cloth or wood to musical sounds or lines of code. My first exposure to web developing was an elective course that I took while working on my BA in music. After many years of playing with geocities and WordPress, I eventually decided to seek a full-time career in this field.

What makes me unique?

I'm a good listener and an open-minded thinker. I'm quiet by nature and good at tactful communication (thanks to my 10+ years of teaching violin). I'm passionate about quality and I'd be an asset to any team.
