Hire Me Because

I come from a background in Special Education where focus, intentional effort, and empathetic teamwork are key to success of students and staff. I will bring those skills to every space as a developer.

My Capstone Project: Journly

Journly is a web application for teachers to create daily posts of gratitude, share posts with others, or browse through a library of books to save to their bookshelf. Technologies implemented in this full-stack Java application include Spring Boot for the main application, the Thymeleaf templating engine for HTML views, jQuery for JavaScript utility, and MySQL for back-end storage. Book data is accessed using Fetch API calls to the Google Books API. Email functionality is reliant on the Mailtrap email API.

“With technology, I am most passionate about the constant need to learn new things. Development is a rapidly-changing field, and there will always be something to learn.
