I traveled every week from Madison, WI to Fort Worth, TX to advise Cook Children’s Hospital on their new installation of Epic.

I taught myself PHP, JavaScript, and web development principles, and finished my first client project in June 2017 – a website featuring a custom CMS and online store with Stripe payments. I’ve done many projects since, including two Ranked Pairs voting applications (which exposed me to Laravel and Vue), and several WordPress features.
