Multifaceted Software Engineer with a background in education and customer service. I'm eager to transition the communication and collaboration skills I gained in my past roles to a career as a developer. As a life-long learner and former teacher, I constantly strive to learn better ways to write clean, adaptable code. I love thinking about how tech can help create a more accessible and democratized world.

Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

Once I get into the groove of a certain role or task I can be hyper efficient while still maintaining a high level of accuracy and an eye for detail. I really enjoy monotonous tasks that others find boring and getting into "the zone" or hyper-focusing when working on a problem. With regards to soft skills and neurodiversity, I strive to understand and value the unique perspectives of others. Because of my past struggles fitting in socially, I'm not closed off to people or ideas that could be considered eccentric, which I consider an asset.

Environments I'm comfortable with

Working with animals
Driving a vehicle
Working with food
Interaction with the public
Heavy lifting
Bright or blinking lights
Loud noises
Outdoors or places with strong smells
Standing for long periods
Variable temperatures
Uniforms (hard hat, hair net, etc.)

I work best in a cubicle or when I have my own space to some degree, away from bright lights and loud noises. That being said, I've worked in a wide array of environments in past roles, so I have strategies to stay productive and focused even when conditions aren't ideal.
