I’m a full-stack web developer and Chief Technology Officer at NutritionFacts.org
I have a passion for all things technical and creative and find inspiration in the everyday things around me. I am in love functional design and enjoy weaving different disciplines of style, art, and technology into my projects. I have over 15 years of development experience dating back to when animated gifs, tables, and Geocities were still cool. (It’s true!)
My specialties include working with early and mid-stage startups and building communities from the ground up. I try to involve myself in projects and businesses that have a positive impact on the world whenever possible.
I have spent over the last three years working contractually as a web developer and consultant to NutritionFacts.org. In November of 2015, I formally joined the team as Chief Technology Officer.
I am always searching for new and inventive side project ideas and try to commit to as many helpful and positive projects as my busy schedule allows. I have a particular interest in bringing more women into IT, especially where it concerns web development, programming and other STEM-related activities. I am open to speaking engagement opportunities on a variety of web development topics and would be glad to visit a classroom or conference to share some of my industry experience.
When I’m not on the job, I enjoy playing classical piano, being a vocalist (R&B/Jazz), playing video games, practicing Tae Kwon Do, as well as spending as much time as possible with my husband, son, my pomeranian, Dante, and two rescued parrots – an African Grey named Merlin and an Indian Ringneck, fondly called “Pickle”.
