"Self taught" in that I found some free resources created by our fantastic developer community; without them I would never have learned.

I got my Psychology degree in 2011 from Iowa State and after spending time teaching overseas I decided to make a career change. Used freecodecamp and other resources along the way to build a portfolio and landed my frist developer job a couple years ago. I'm currently at Jung von Matt, a very fun and creative digital agency.

There were a lot of ups and downs while trying to get that first job, but for anyone trying to persue their frost jov, hang in there because if I can do it, you certainly can.
