Web / UX Designer
In 2013, I started my transition from adminstrative assitant to front-end web designer. Facing a job hunt after 7 years with a firm was eye opening. My transition was not necessarily inspired, but brought on by reality. I was employed in an ever declining profession. Making a re-evaluation of my career life was essential.
After completing a few online MOOCs, I discovered I had a real passion for web development. Taking advantage of W3Schools, MDN Web Docs and, the big kahuna, WC3 tutorials I was able to teach myself the art of front-end web design. Being an admin had actually made the transition easy for me. As a legal assistant, I never shied away from using the advance features of apps. I have experience using SQL, macros and mastered the basics of VBA.
My passion is building clean, scalable and responsive web sites. Using best web practices, css frameworks, js libraries and prototyping tools is how most of my projects are built. Web developer's are in continious training mode. Currently, my studies are focused on adding Google UX Design Professional Certificate to my repertoire. A quick study, eager to learn and pro-active, I am a perfect fit for start-ups, entry or junior leval positions.

Is it wise to admit that I am re-working all my samples? To late, I just did. Rebuilding underway means all I have on offer is my old samples. Find a few quick links below. An in-page app sample has been included as well. The app is an upgrade on one of the “Five Challenges” posed by Andy Sterkowitz, a Youtuber who's extraordinaire. Enjoy!
