Front-End Developer Specializing in Accessibility and WordPress

I started my tech career in 2008 when I managed my organization's static HTML website.

I have since played the roles of digital marketing manager, project manager, layout designer, and front-end developer.

I spent over a decade in the nonprofit world, made a brief stop in pharma marketing, and am now in state government building accessible WordPress websites.


Selected Experience

Government Information Center, Delaware Department of State

I joined the Government Information center as a web developer one month before the pandemic hit. I became the layout designer and lead developer for the Delaware Coronavirus information website. I have also done front-end development and accessibility work for other Delaware state websites.

I made a brief stop here in a contract front-end developer role working with pharmaceutical clients who specialized in treating rare diseases.

It was my first time being on a team of developers, and it helped strenghten my HTML, CSS, and JavaScript chops as well as exposed me to BrowserStack and Email on Acid.

I worked on static HTML websites for drug launches, email templates, and Google banner ads.
