December 2022 I graduated from Western Michigan with a B.S in Computer Science with Cum Laude distinction. I am looking for an opportunity to put what I have learned to the test. I am a hard worker and fully dedicate myself to whatever tasks I am working on. My greatest asset is my willingness to accept what I don't know and quickly learn it. There is nothing I enjoy more than learning new skills, so there is no role I won't try. Most of my development experience is in Python, C, C#, and Java. I also have experience in some front-end frameworks such as Bootstrap, VueJS, and Angular. At TEKSystems I was able to grow my technical knowledge working first hand with GuideWire ClaimCenter, Microsoft SQL Server, Gosu, Kotlin, Spring Boot, Java, Git, Jenkins, Splunk, Jira, and Confluence.
