I’m a web developer here at DeafandHoH. I graduated from Portland State University in 2016 with a B.A. in German. A language enthusiast with a background in editing, translation, and education, I knew my technical and creative passions would have a place in the field of web development and design. In 2019 I earned the Web Assistant II certificate at Portland Community College, culminating in my internship at DeafandHoH.com.

By implementing designs and features for the DeafandHoH website, I’ve expanded my technical knowledge, particularly of PHP and WordPress. Through researching and updating site content, I’ve learned a good deal about deaf culture, and I’m pleased to help develop a platform and resource for the deaf and hard of hearing community.
