I'm a fresh front-end coding convert who has a New Zealand accent and lives in Toronto. I made my way into tech via almost a decade of elementary teaching experience & my various leadership roles in edutech.
Between the permanent move across the Pacific and this exciting career pivot into tech, I have grit & tenacity pouring out of my pockets.
It's my passion for human connection and the empowerment of under-resourced communities that fuels me to build efficient and intuitive sites.

The client brief for this project was to create a quiet place for users to develop a writing practice.
