Full Stack JavaScript Developer | Educator | Journalist

Hello! My name is Maddy!

I am back in Seattle after living in Dallas for four years. I graduated with a degree in Visual Journalism and a minor in Sociology from Western Washington University.

In May of 2017 I quit a job at Apple retail that I loved to continue working on something that I have wanted to do for over a decade.

At Apple I worked with an amazing team of hilarious, hard working, smart people who I learned from every day. I taught workshops, coordinated businesses to come in for one on one consulting, and I facilitated Swift Playgrounds workshops for all ages. 

I left Apple to enroll in Code Fellows, one of the top coding bootcamps in Seattle. I am a Full-Stack JavaScript Developer with an obsession for user centered design. 

My goals are to:

1. Work as a frontend and backend developer (Javascript, jQuery, Node.js, Express, SQL, MongoDB, React).

2. Work as an Accessibility Specialist (ARIA, Section 508, WCAG, and screen reader technology).

3. Share what I know through teaching and mentoring.

4. Learn from everyone around me. 

5. Continue to expand Coding Falcons, the after school coding class my co-teacher Ivette founded in 2017. Our ultimate goal is to incorporate Computer Science into standard school curriculums.
