Serving customers in-store, over the phone, and online. Entering, pricing, and shelving inventory. Maintaining store's visual appeal and browse-ability. Maintaining customer satisfaction on the M&Q online store and various online Marketplaces, domestic and international. This has been my part-time job since graduating from coding bootcamp. I suspended my developer job search to help my mother from cancer diagnosis through hospice. I then suffered from a detached retina that took several months to heal. Then, the Covid Economy. Even so, I’ve continued studying coding and I am enthusiastically searching for my first job in the field. Prime Digital Academy Feb 2018 – June 2018

● Solo Project: Good Deeds Anonymous:

“We need reminders of the small acts of generosity being done around us, by us.” I created an online method for people to anonymously share stories about their good deeds. Any visitor can read the contributed stories, sorted geographically. Visitors can register and log on to create content. The ripple-effect of each good deed is visualized with custom icons centered by ZIP Code on Google Maps.
