I found my way into the tech industry through my curiosity to become more creative in a ever changing digital world. I started taking a design fundamentals and production class which lead to a Web Development class. Realizing that a career shift was in order, I began to pursue a career in development and joined the HackerYou Front End Development Bootcamp to further satisfy my curiosity.
Upon graduation from the Bootcamp, I landed my first gig as a Front End Developer at Demac Media. Working in a fast paced agency, I cut my teeth and grew as a developer teaching myself the heavy platform of Magento and creating the front end experience for online retailers.
For my side hustle, I started exploring Sketch and the prototyping tool Framer.
This opened my brain to the world of UX and user-focused design.
Recently, I completed an Intro to UX Design, and Advanced UX application course, where I learned the power of emotion in design. This is where my true passion lies.
I balance my passion for design and UX by spending time with my husband and our dog Prudence, dreaming of Disney World, and finding my zen with my Pilates instructor.
