About Me


After working in the restaurant industry achieving the title of manager I still found myself wanting more. I decided to go back to school and find something that I can be passionate about, which I found in the form of coding. I took multiple classes in C# and HTML/CSS and found that I really enjoyed using my imagination to create. After this realization I decided to take a chance and move 800 miles to a new city and participate in the Nashville Software School. I want to use the customer service experience that I have gained in the service industry, and combine that with my new technical skills.

Since moving to Nashville and starting Nashville Software School I have learned so much! I have increased my ability with HTML and CSS, have a better understanding of javascript and react, and am looking forward to learning python/django and SQL.
