While I have left the high school chemistry classroom, I will always be a teacher. That part of me has influenced my wish to collaborate on a team of like-minded folks committed to creating applications and experiences for learners and information seekers who want to make the web, and world, a more beautiful and accessible place.
That drive also led me to two amazing communities from whom I have learned so much and to which I am happy to volunteer:
I'm proud to serve as a board member of The Collab Lab and to coordinate The Career Lab, a two-week session offered to participants once they complete the eight-week project.
I love to assist in the coordination of Friday Lunch & Learns for Virtual Coffee, an online community of and for developers.
In 2023 I became a Certified Scrum Master because the values and princples of Agile are a perfect fit for my need for collaboration, communication, reflection, and productivity. It just makes such good sense.
When I'm not coding or building community, you'll find me crocheting, walking my dog, or visiting one of Georgia's phenomenal state or local parks. And I do mean phenomenal. Keep scrolling for the spectacular picture I took with my phone last fall at Gibbs Gardens.

Throughout my teaching career, I have honed my communication and problem-solving skills, as well as my ability to work in a team. These skills translate extremely well to software development teams, where collaboration and effective communication are essential. I have experience collaborating with remote teams around the world and am comfortable with tools such as JIRA. Additionally, I have experience with Agile methodologies, pair programming, reviewing pull requests, and providing constructive feedback to team members. Then there's tackling bug tickets. I love getting my Nancy Drew on to hunt down a glitch.
I met a very passionate Vue developer at a networking event in May and decided to try out a couple tutorials. While I have no plans to switch from React at the moment, I feel like Vue might be a lot more intuitive to learn.
Check out the silly thing I made if you need a laugh.
