My Story

I was raised in Santa Cruz, California, and graduated from Brandeis with a Bachelor's in Math and Studio Art. My passion for creative problem-solving led me to a successful career in finance, but after a few years, I realized I needed work that was more meaningful—for myself and my clients. A foundational knowledge of design and logic led me to study programming and web design at UMASS Lowell, where I’m completing my Bachelor's in Information Technology and my Certificate in Website Design. I live in Billerica, Massachusetts with my fiancé, Dan, and our two adorable cats, Maggie and Baxter.

When I'm Not Designing Webpages. . .


I love to sit down in front of the fire to play a game of Sid Meier's Civilization with my housemates


There is nothing more rewarding than being loved by your pets! I make sure I spend plenty of time with my two furbabies, Maggie & Baxter.


I dabble in various art forms: painting, diamond painting, sculpting ceramics and wood working.
