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. In all of my previous roles, I relied very heavily on technology, both to help me problem solve and to maximize my efficiency when resources were extremely limited. It was through these experiences that I gained a deep appreciation for the capacity of technology to transform the world, and decided to study software development in order to increase my impact.
I thrive in full-stack and front-end engineer positions that allow me to combine my experience in leadership and highly collaborative roles; my love of problem solving, patterns, and algorithms which originally drew me to linguistics; and my passion for software development.
