A LITTLE ABOUT ME

After graduating from the University of Connecticut with a political science degree I worked for 3.5 years at a law firm as a paralegal. After considering my future, I decided I wanted to go in a different direction and decided to persue something that would combine my lifelong interest in technology and my problem solving skills, while also giving me a fulfulling and interesting career. After exploring my options on how to acheive this, I found App Academy where I learned the skills that allowed me to create modern web applications, a few of which you will find below. As tech is an ever evolving field I plan to continue to keep up with the latest trends in order keep my skillset fresh.
