I am very passionate about technology and strive to contribute to the advancement of technology. I have a strong background in substance abuse/healthcare and learned how to code so that I could improve a lot of the things that I saw were very broken in the way that people obtained information and got help for their issues. I recently finished a passion project that allows people in the substance abuse/mental health community to anonymously post about their struggles, accomplishments, and anything else on their minds, and also create discussions about specific treatment facilities, amongst other features.

Ideal Workplace Values

Diversity amongst employees and upper management, meaning many women-led roles and POC-led roles. Being environmentally friendly would be a plus. Awareness regarding neurodivergence and mental health, and the systems in place to support that. Ideally, my workspace would allow me to ask questions and bring new ideas to the table, encouraging creativity and innovation.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

My ADHD allows me to hyperfocus on coding and solving problems, hours could fly by when trying to figure something out and it would feel like 20 minutes. All of this is possible due to how much I love to code. I'm also very personable and don't have an issue at all talking to people, explaining myself, and working with others.
