I'm a web designer and full stack developer who enjoys building beautiful, user-friendly applications.

About Me

Hi, I'm Tracy. My path to web development was not a linear one. In fact, in my first life, I was an environmental scientist! Here is my journey.

I was first exposed to web design and development in 2010 when I was tasked with maintaining an events-based website for a professional networking group. I really enjoyed the duality of my role which allowed me to use my logical, problem-solving side to improve functionality and user experience but also my creative, artistic side to improve upon the aesthetic appeal of the website. It was empowering to do the behind-the-scenes design work, and a curiosity about web development was ignited.

I was a scientist for about 15 years when I sought out a path that would allow me to use both my logical and creative sides. I analyzed (and re-analyzed) the characteristics I wanted my new career to have, what I'm good at and how I envisioned my future. I evaluated many options but kept coming back to web development. It just fit.

I enrolled myself in an online certificate program to become a full stack developer and recently graduated. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors doing anything active: paddle boarding, hiking, running and watching sunsets.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding Club

This website is a demonstration of a member-based application that requires users to complete a signup form and then login to access the site. User information is securely stored in a small database. This website was born as a result of my newer found love of paddle boarding and is a work-in-progress.

Number Psychic

This application accepts a user number and then my code quesses the number. A tally of guesses is provided so the user can see how many guesses it took to arrive at the correct answer. I love math and this was a fun project for me. I also enjoy CSS animations and created a 'burning' header to add to the magical effect of the application.

Timers

This application consists of a stopwatch and countdown timer. Only one option can run at a time, so the user makes a selection and the appropriate time is dynamically updated. I included a fun sound at the end of the countdown timer so the user knows that time's up. I've also included an animated header for interest.

The Endangered Big Cats

I built this static website as my first major project as a web developer. I became an environmental scientist because of these big cats, and this website is a tribute to them. It was important to me that I provide accurate information on this site, so I spent a lot of time doing research. I love color and chose a theme that compliments the natural environment.
