I am a well-rounded individual with a background in communication, online engagement, and knowledge translation for non-profit organizations. I enjoy connecting these real world experiences to innovative solutions for projects and taking them from concept to completion. While I am more proficient with back-end systems like databases, I would like to expand my skills to be a versatile full-stack developer.
