I was an art teacher from central-southeastern Ohio who stepped out of her comfort zone into a software development apprenticeship at the Software Craftsmanship Guild in Akron, Ohio. For the past 16 years, I’ve been raising babies. Now I’m about to learn to write code.
I spend 60 to 70 hours per week writing Java programs. On the weekends, I go home to see my family. In a few weeks, I start the job hunting process.
I have an incredibly supportive, albeit slightly puzzled husband, and three teenage boys. I also have a beautiful Australian Shepherd named Indi who doesn’t understand why I’m not home much anymore. She pouts when I get ready to drive back to Akron.
