and a particular love for design and user experience.
I’m currently a full-stack software engineer at Hint Health. Previously, I was Engineer #2 and a Product/QA Lead for the Customer Experience team at Gobble, where I was responsible for our public-facing marketing website, core customer-facing application, internal applications, and A/B growth initiatives.
I’m motivated by product design and real-world impact. I can (and have) spent hours ensuring my applications are pixel-perfect, and I especially enjoy turning ideas into reality.
In my spare time, I particularly enjoy creating solutions to problems that I personally have. For example, my first application was a restaurant recommendation engine, because I have always struggled with the question “what should I eat for dinner?” I’ve also recently contributed to a debugger tool to help other developers understand the protocols behind OAuth and OpenID Connect flows.
I believe in companies that encourage life outside of work, understand that thorough planning can save hours of programming, appreciate engineers with diverse backgrounds and skillsets, and value getting (sh)it done :) Bonus points if I can easily explain to my non-technical parents exactly what I do and why it’s important.
My engineering skills are backed by extensive experience in marketing, account management, customer support, product development, and operations. I’ve worked in small businesses and startups (including my own) and led teams from three to twenty.
Because of the many hats that I have worn throughout my career, I am a team player who understands how my role can impact all other areas of the business. It’s not just about engineering; it’s about communication, teamwork, and a mutual passion to drive our product forward and faster.
Four years ago, I relocated to pursue my dream of working for startups. I love being surrounded by people who are passionate about what they do and are driven to make an impact. I thrive on challenges and deadlines, am fanatical about the tiny details, and believe that thorough planning can save hours of programming.
There is nothing I love more than checking things off a list, figuring out how to turn an idea into reality, and creating order out of chaos. I truly enjoy tackling every aspect of the application development, from planning and wireframing to prototyping and improving features. I’m not afraid to work hard, and I’m passionate about delivering results.
