I wanted to be able to own my projects all the way from first concept to finished product. I have a BFA in Graphic Design and started my career in that field, as a graphic designer. However, as more and more of my work became web design vs. print design, I was frustrated by the need to hand my projects over to a dev to finish. It was a transition that happened over a few years, but I kept intentionally picking up new projects that pushed the boundaries of my knowledge and let me practice what I was learning. Today, I am employed as a full-time front-end dev.
Building a webapp to coordinate meetups for my international women's fitness group (with a team of other women from the group)! We're just in the starting, brainstorming stages and the possibilities are so exciting. We want to help facilitate real world connections and friendships within our group.
A new job possibility on the horizon. Litmus Live 2017 in Boston (#emailgeeks). Ever-expanding CSS Grid support. Building more websites that include animations.
You're doing better than you think you are, so don't sell yourself short. Impostor syndrome is a bitch – don't listen to that little voice in the back of your head saying you're not good enough. Actually, don't listen to ANYONE saying you're not good enough. You're killin' it. Keep building.
It's social media for devs
