You had me at "Hello World!"
From the moment I got my first real taste of the creativity, satisfaction, and
problem solving of coding, I knew I wanted to figure out how to make a career out of it.
I'm a dedicated wife and mama, and I am learning more every day in order to pave the way to be able to raise my goofy son while also engaging in a career I really enjoy. I love to create things that are beautiful and useful and want to use code to make a positive and lasting impact in this world.
This newsletter is the result of a pair programming project to build an
html email from a fictional company, in this case, a community food bank trying to
recruit volunteers. My teammate, Andrea Martz and I used Trello to organize our ideas and tasks, and we communicated
via Slack and video conferencing. We pair programmed through VS Code Live Share and collaborated
on GitHub. I did the primary design work and layout for the project in Figma.
The newsletter project provided me my first experience in working remotely on a team. I learned ways to improve upon my communcation skills, as well as how to engage in a collaborative work flow.

After reviewing and trying countless templates, I decided it was time to just start from scratch to make my own portfolio website - and I was up for the challenge! I first drew my ideas on paper and then created a wireframe in Figma. After some feedback, I started coding this site with HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap. I learned a great deal along the way, some of which I kept track of within the README in my GitHub repository. My site may be simple, but it's clean, it's happy, and it's made by me!

The goal of this project was to design and develop an MVP for Authentic Grace, a fictional brick-and-mortar clothing
store in need of a website. The homepage of the website was built collaboratively by Racquel Tung and myself
in response to an assigment during Cohort 4 of the Moms Can: Code School. We were given information about the client's brand and
website needs, as well as a brief customer persona.
My responsibilities included leading the design and coding the top half of the page. I especially enjoyed the design process, as well as coding without a framework. I gained a greater understanding of the languages and sharpened my remote teamwork skills.
A few features were added to the Authentic Grace storefront in this project update. I added a detailed product page (accessed by clicking the first image under "Shop Our Social Styles" on the homepage). I also created a web accessibility report based on the first version of the home page, and then updated the homepage to be more accessible.
I'd love to hear from you!
