Education

I've been taught a thing or two along the way.

Coding Campus

Certificate of Completion – Completed: May 19, 2014

Coding Campus is a 12-week, full-time learning course focused on teaching web and software development through both lecture- and project- focused learning. At the time I took the class, the languages and technologies I learned included HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AngularJS, Git, Python, and Django.

Brigham Young University

BA Communications: Advertising Emphasis; Business Minor – Graduated: Aug 2011

The advertising program at BYU is consistently ranked among the best undergraduate advertising programs in the nation. While there, I focused on the strategic planning aspect of advertising – researching trends, brands, and consumers, and implementing the findings into a strategic campaign that best communicates the company's core message.

Me

As my mom always said, "It started on a snowy March morning..."

profile

I really started programming in middle school on my TI-83+ graphing calculator. I wish I had realized then that I could have kept building programs as a career.

I studied communications in college and emphasized in advertising. I finished an internship at a very well-known advertising agency and began working at a digital marketing agency doing search engine optimization. After not too long, I realized that I had more fun concepting new business ideas and building them out than I did simply promoting other people's stuff, so I started learning programming in my spare time through various online resources. When the opportunity arose to really focus on learning to code, I jumped at the chance.

I'm currently the lead instructor of the MEAN stack course at Coding Campus. We teach a myriad of languages and technologies (including JavaScript, AngularJS, Node.js, Express, Mongo, Mongoose, HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap) to students either looking to improve their contributions at work or to undergo a complete career change.
