Hey, I'm Kayliegh
Let's build something together.
Hey there! I am a teacher-turned-techie seeking employment as a Software Developer.
While introducing my students to coding through a 'Week of Code' initiative, I unexpectedly caught the programming bug. I was immediatly attracted to the logic and complexity of code, but what really drew me in was the feeling of finally reaching a solution after working through a difficult problem. The more I leaned into coding, the more I discovered it a great fit with my passion for life-long learning and problem solving.
At first, I considered web development a new hobby and began working on a few side projects: I helped a nonprofit rebuild their WordPress website; I built a static site for a local business using HTML and CSS; I learned principles of web design to help a local baker develop a high-impact email marketing campaign.
In April of 2020, I began to study web development full time. Since then, I've been taking online courses, learning new languages, building projects, and listening to all the coding podcasts I can get my hands on! While I've loved every minute of self-study, I'm eager to apply my skills in the workplace while collaborating with a team, learning from skilled programmers, and gaining professional software development experience.
Aside from coding, I'm passionate about helping others, building community, and the power of education to transform the world. I want to build things that drive positive change.
You in? Let's build something great together!
