About Me

After graduating with a degree in Business and Literature, I worked as a marketing specialist in the tech world. During that time, I used website templates that didn't allow for much unique functionality. I discovered a passion for building websites and switched my career path to attack more creative and innovative tasks that come with full stack development. I look forward to working alongside industry professionals who will encourage me to further my knowledge and incorporate my uniqueness into my code. I hope to weave in my penchant for arts and literature with my coding career.

    project name

    Dad Jokes - December 2019

  • App Description: This is a site/app that allows users to input their own dad jokes and browse through random jokes that are set to a timer to show the punchline.
  • What I Learned: One of the most difficult and eye-opening experiences I have had at Lambda. This was the first project I had that required a lot of communication, dealing with so much conflict. I was working on the React log-in and sign-up forms and linking it up with the landing page. I ended up having to assist the React 2 in his duties as one of our team mates decided to not help and not communicate at all. It was a great chance for me to look ahead at the code that I was to learn in the future of my Lambda career.
  • Technical Stack: React, Formik, Material UI, React Dom, React Router, SASS, styled-components and Yup.
