A Bit About Me

Throughout the rigours of the past two months at Lighthouse Labs, I realized my passion lies Front End Development and being able to see the work I create display before my eyes. My passion for good, clean design and a great UX is something I hope to continue to use throughout the start of my career as a Web Dev.

I thrive on being thrown into new and slightly unfamiliar circumstances, which is why I was drawn to the web development program at Lighthouse Labs. My background in Marketing and Retail is a far cry from the complexities of a beautiful piece of code, but I have found a passion for programming that even surprised myself! I would love to work in an environment that continuously pushes me to learn new languages and frameworks on a regular basis.
