about Laura

Hi there!

I’m a front-end web developer with a passion for building applications that are intuitive to use across many platforms.I love sharing ideas and collaborating to find the best solutions that meet our users needs! I find bringing a vision to life through code truly exhilarating.

As a former research professional I actively integrate my knowledge and passion for research into the applications I build by striving to apply the latest recommendations and tools in accessibility and mobile responsiveness.

I also enjoy infusing my diverse interests into my personal projects including astronomy, natural nutrition, astrology and cats (see Catstrology below!). I fell in love with programming because it allows me to explore both my creative and logistical problem-solving skills. I'm constantly curious and am thrilled to have found a vocation that teaches me something new, every single day!
