Practice in converting a mock-up image to a website. This project was independently and fully hand-coded in HTML and CSS, without using any frameworks or generators.view the code
Nashville Ladies' Hack Day project to learn more about the Command Line Interface (CLI), Python, and the Twitter API. This Twitter bot was built for fun and to make people smile. It searches Twitter for instances of "coding is hard," then replies with a response to encourage people in programming studies. The Twitter account and voice is from the viewpoint of my cat, Hampton, who loves to lay on my side (or sometimes all over my laptop) and watch my screen as I code.view the code

I come from a well-rounded business background with ten years in marketing, office management, customer service, and social media marketing. I have also worked eight years in healthcare - with two of those years focused on senior living, two years focused on supporting the website needs of 800+ hospitals for a Fortune 100 company, and four year focused on healthcare big data analysis.
Since graduating Nashville Software School, I’ve been working full-time for eight years as a programmer and I am now a Senior Front End Engineer.
Team collaboration is my approach to continued learning and sharing my knowledge with others, which is why being active in the Nashville tech community has been important to me. I volunteered with BarCamp Nashville and PodCamp Nashville from 2011-2014, and served as chair of PodCamp Nashville in 2012. In 2013, I co-founded Nashville's first free-to-attend women-in-programming focused group called Nashville Women Programmers. Seven years later and the group is still going strong! In 2016, I started volunteering as a host on the NashDev Podcast, a podcast for the local developer community.In 2017, I also co-founded Nashville LGBT+ in Tech.
Public speaking is another area in which I am growing my skills and sharing knowledge as I learn to program. In 2013, I got to speak (and open for Nashville Mayor, Karl Dean!) at The Nashville Technology Council’s Techville event. I spoke on how the Nashville Women Programmers group was formed and lessons we learned in that process. I also spoke on Coding for Creative Types at PodCamp Nashville 2013. In 2019, I gave a talk on the Chrome DevTools sources panel to three local tech groups, including NashJS.
But enough talking about me. Please take a look at my portfolio above, which links to code samples on GitHub. I love meeting new people in the development field, so please feel free to get in contact via the networks below.
