ABOUT ME

My fascination with technology

A little story about me

I fell in love with computers when my father gave me my first Macintosh at five years old. When I was eleven I started teaching myself DOS and Algebra for fun.

Now, with more than ten years of development experience and many more years of research, I am confident I can develop programmatic solutions to any* problem.

I love turning new ideas into virtual realities. If you can dream it and communicate it, I can build it. Development is not a job for me but a way of life, my own personal version of the Matrix, and a daily puzzle to solve.

My Work Process

  1. Analyze existing business processes, evaluate possible automation strategies and present options for how to architect and implement solutions.
  2. Develop applications that automate and streamline business processes while enhancing the usability of current systems.
  3. Create intuitive interfaces to decrease onboarding time, increase productivity and raise profit margins.

SENIOR JAVASCRIPT & ANIMATION DEVELOPER

OXFORD DIGITAL

During my time at Oxford I've had the opportunity to work on three awesome projects.
I started on the latest project at Remedy Partners in June 2017. I taught myself React and Redux in the week prior to the 3-month engagement. As a peer-coding team we created several custom components to enhance the rebuild of their current software.
EsriU is an online training platform built with the MEAN stack and detailed below.
The second project is an animation I built for UPS through their consulting firm T3. I have worked with the designer and project manager for several months crafting a solution to engage users on their customer facing website. Built using D3, jQuery and SVG technologies, I created a simulated 3D box model that updates dimensions via user input as it changes in real time. Then I turned the animation code into an Angular 4 component.
Skills: React, Redux, RxJS, Ramda, Animation, D3, SVG, ThreeJS, jQuery, Angular4, MEAN, AngularJS, Node, Mongo.

EDUCATION

Where I Studied

2014

MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

KELLER GRADUATE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT

In 2014 I graduated with my Masters degree from Keller Graduate School of Management. One of my many passions is teaching and when I retire I want to be a college professor. I studied both business administration and computer programming with focus on the technology sector career paths. I devoted myself to learning all I could during my graduate studies and led several of our project teams to earn A+ grades.
Emphasis in computer programming.
GPA 3.58/4.0

2010

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN GAME AND SIMULATION PROGRAMMING

DEVRY UNIVERSITY

When I moved to DeVry that's when my career goals started taking focus and though I first started as a computer programming major I soon switched to game and simulation programming because of my fascination with physics and mathematics. While studying at DeVry I learned about C++ and all of its great possibilities. I learned how to configure game engines, how to build out artificial intelligence, how to do the physics calculations to create realistic 3-D worlds.

I took double course loads most semesters to graduate faster. I was one of only six people in my graduating class and the first and only female to graduate from the program in Georgia at the time. I became a mentor and tutor to freshman and sophomore students teaching computer programming in my off time to those who needed a little more attention. I started building out games on my own as well as in teams or groups and discovered a fascination with the world of artificial intelligence.
Emphasis on physics and mathematics.
GPA 3.81/4.0

2007

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN WEB PROGRAMING

KAPLAN UNIVERSITY

During my time at Kaplan University I studied web programming in HTML, CSS and JavaScript in their early forms, learning the basic building blocks of programming. It was there I discovered what would become my foundation for studying programming for years to come.
GPA 3.67/4.0
