I'm over-the-moon excited to announce that I've officially landed my first role as a Software Engineer!
I'm proud to say this has happened almost exactly one year from the day I left my last job in customer support with Scott's Cheap Flights!
When I left, I had the lofty goal of teaching myself to code and learning enough to be able to make a career switch to software engineering, and I actually did it!!!!
I'm so incredibly grateful to everyone who has been a part of my journey - from friends and family who've stayed updated on my progress, to peers and mentors I've met and leaned on for support over the past year.
Ahhh! It doesn't feel real! I'm so, so ready to hit the ground running and to get started on this wild, crazy, wonderful ride chapter of my new career!
To new beginnings and to dreams that ultimately become reality!
P.S. I'm launching a new course - Crafting Your Come-Up - for early-career developers to set themselves apart along their coding journey!
