As a software developer, I plan on pursuing an opportunity to help others in an alternative way while still allowing me to approach it with the compassion and passion I had while working with kids and helping them grow to be the best version of themselves.
I spent the last eight years in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) where I was given the opportunity to help teach children with behavioral health needs or with developmental delays. It was a great experience being able to problem solve in the moment and help teach the kids alternative ways to communicate their wants and needs and see their growth in communication with the work we did together.
Opportunities within the field that led to growth meant moving into different positions and spending less time with the kids and those opportunities weren't for me in the end. I decided if I was going to take a step away from working with kids I wanted to do something I could be equally as passionate about while still being able to help others continue to learn and grow.
I'm a backend engineer who values compassion, creativity, and helping to create inclusive environments where everyone is seen and heard. I thrive on seeing others succeed and grow to become the best version of themselves. Feel free to message me here or email!
