"What one programmer can do in one month, two programmers can do in two months." - Fred Brooks
I am 11 year web and graphic designer/deveoper that is also a mother to 4 amazing children. Taking gorgeous pictures of my little ones, as well as focusing on green initiatives like gardening, local farming, and solar energy are the things of which I am most fascinated. I graduated from college cum laude with Honors in 2005 with a Computer Information Systems degree - and had already developed a deep love for design and marketing. I have self-taught the majority of my coding background, as I graduated with COBOL and HTML experience primarily.
I have been developing in waterfall and agile environments for 8+ years. I started freelancing in 2004 before graduating college with graphic design - primarily logos an business identity and marketing materials. I started my development career a year after graduating as an HTML analyst for an energy trading coporation. I absorbed as much as I could and began taking classes online and building websites for clients on the side. Since then I have become well versed in all sorts of front end and responsive design and development. I began focusing on SEO so that when designing and building websites, I always had best practices and policies for Search Engine Optimization in mind. Design and development cater to two very different sides of my personality - one being more creative and the other very methodical. I absolutely love seeing and using the finish product of my work.
