I am a DC-based front-end engineer; motivated by the power of technology as a tool for positive change; and with a background in linguistics, education, and nonprofit management. When not coding, I love reading, traveling, and most of all doting on my puppy.
Before becoming a software engineer, I worked in nonprofit management at a refugee resettlement agency and in English language education. I've always loved harnessing the magic of communication to do my job, whether that involved
- studying spoken languages or learning programming languages;
- teaching new concepts in the classroom or describing new concepts through documentation; or
- training and providing feedback to teachers or providing code review for team members.
I thrive in collaborative roles on mission-driven teams that value curiosity and life-long learning.
