I’m Emily, and I am a newly-converted software developer. Before 2020, my professional experience was focused in music, as a classical pianist and music educator. My transition to tech began at the onset of the pandemic when I was laid off from most of my work. Inspired by my experience teaching lessons from home, I grew curious about coding and how applications could better serve the needs of musicians and music teachers. I started experimenting with HTML and CSS, and found I really enjoyed the puzzle and problem-solving. Within months, I chose to make a career pivot into tech by way of a 14-week coding bootcamp with Tech Elevator. I love holding down the fort with Java on the back-end, but also enjoy seeing the fruits of my labor on the front-end with Vue.js. When I am not learning new skills as a developer or in front of the piano, you can find me in nature, hiking with my family and two dogs.
