Unlimited Possibilities


In 2020 I made the exciting decision to begin a career as a Software Developer. Because of this career switch much of my work history comes from completely different industries than the one in which I am currently pursuing, however some basic fundamentals are the same no matter what. Working as a part of a team towards a common goal, meeting deadlines while maintaining efficiency, remaining productive in stressful or rapidly changing environments, and always being willing to continue to learn and explore.

My Projects

Here are a few projects that I built while learning and exploring

WordPress Website Redesign

The assignment was to pick a local non-profit whose website needed an upgrade and redesign it in WordPress. I created a new transparent logo for the site using Canva with the concept of making the existing logo cleaner and more flexible. I used a Divi Theme but also coded the contact form in Javascript, CSS, and HTML for additional experience. The content was pulled from a combination of their social media sites as well as their website. Also a few Royalty free stock images for a cleaner look.

Full Stack Application - Group Project

Group Capstone Project to combine skills learned during Software development Certification. During the last 2 months of class, My partner and I developed a full stack web application using Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB and Mongoose, Bootstrap, HTML5, CSS3, vanilla JavaScript and Google Maps API. The application features a database of over 150 local producers, farmers markets, and community resources stored in the database and called onto the page by category. Each resource is also mapped onto the working Google Maps API

Website Redesign - Group Project

This was a group project to take an existing or fictional website for a business and redesign it. Our Fictional business that we created is a shipping company for Chewbacca and Hans Solo. We took a basic bootstrap template designed for shipping and redesigned it, added pages, and original site text.
