About

Hi, I'm Melissa. I'm a Front End Web Developer currently based in Toronto and a graduate of the Immersive Front-End Web Development program at HackerYou.

With an eye for design and a mandate to write clean code, my goal is to create aesthetically pleasing websites from the inside out. I love solving problems creatively in order to build engaging user experiences.

Curious by nature, I have an insatiable appetite for learning and expanding my skills as a developer.
