Long story short, I went to school for and began my career in digital marketing. I got a lot of great experience, but I didn't really feel fulfilled – I wanted to make something. I wanted to think critically. I decided I wanted to learn how to code.
I had been taking classes and learning in a fairly casual way, but a lay-off from a job at a printing company (thanks, COVID!) gave me the boost I needed to fully lean into a career change: I joined LaunchCode, and will soon finish the program feeling confident in my front-end web development abilities. As a supplement to that, I have also just completed a Certificate of Specialization in Web Development from St. Louis Community College.
So, no. I don't have a 4-year degree in anything to do with computer science. I don't have a lot of professional web development experience. but I *do* have a strong desire to learn and grow my current skillset. I *do* have a background that, I think, makes me a valuable asset: my experience in marketing, project management and graphic design means I'm familiar with just about every part of the web development process. I'm ready to put my skills, both new and old, to good use. If you're ready, too, drop me a line. Otherwise, download my resume or check out my full education and employment background on LinkedIn. Github is home to most of the work I've done, so take a look at that as well.
