Hi! I am a Software Engineer at Garmin. I hope to be involved in machine learning, artificial intelligence and web development in the future. I grew up in Naples, ME which is a small, rural town in south-western Maine. I originally was exposed to programming and the internals of computers when I about 7 years old as my dad was a software engineer at the time. However, I didn't pursue learning more about programming until my tween years where I was taught LOGO in a gifted and talented math class. I also learned HTML and CSS on my own time during the years that followed. While I was in college, I pursued neuroscience as it was an interest of mine and learned a lot about the basic foundations of the brain as well as the workings of the nervous system in different animal systems. I graduated with honors in neuroscience and headed off to medical school at the University of Vermont. I have since graduated from that institution and obtained a BS degree in computer science from Oregon State University. I hope to combine my interests in public health, data science and neuroscience with my burgeoning skills in technology. I was initially interested in primarily web development but with the exposure I have had in my curriculum at Oregon State and in conferences I have attended (DevWeek2019) and books and podcasts I've been exposed to, I have realized an interest in software engineering with a focus on data science and artificial intelligence.
