I started working at a financial advisory firm in Chicago right after graduating from the University of Michigan in 2015 with majors in Economics and German.
Not long after, I began to build a Wordpress site to share and discuss interesting articles, books and podcasts with my virtual book club. I became absolutely enthralled with customizing the design, implementing knew functionality and simply building something from nothing.
Over the next year and a half, I spent my mornings, nights and weekends learning and coding as much as I could. I built a portfolio of fun and challenging projects to gain practical, technical experience. I also became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional during that time.
I landed my first developer job in early 2018 at an IT company and have been loving it ever since.
