Welcome! I'm a software engineer specializing in web development. Currently, I am working part-time as a Learning Assistant & Substitute TA for the University of Washington Coding Boot Camp and volunteering as a full-stack developer (Python, React) for the Live Music Project, a Seattle nonprofit connecting people with classical music. I have a Certificate in Web
Development from Epicodus and internship experience
with Wheelhouse Digital Marketing Group, where I
worked on a
business intelligence product built serverlessly with Node.js, React, and AWS (Mozaic).
My background is in geology. As a student in geology, I romped around landscapes all over the United States mapping rock outcrops, studying soil profiles, and researching active faults. After graduation, I sharpened my GIS and data visualization skills as a Research Fellow at the National Energy Technology Lab. Then, I spent 2.5 years as a consulting geologist, assessing and mitigating geologic hazards such as landslides, soil settlement, and liquefaction in the Pacific Northwest and developing valuable customer-facing communication and coordination skills.
I thrive when I'm constantly learning new things. I believe that the quality of code and documentation are just as important as the quality of user experience. My dream job would be one where my software skills, scientific background, and people skills will be valued and used.
