About

A photo of Julia

I am a former Content Designer and Developer, who found a passion for coding on the job. With a diploma from Seneca College in Esthetics, and various Web Development courses completed from Juno College of Technology, I found a great blend of utilizing my design mindset to effectively solve any programming task.

To me, growth and life-long learning are the two most important aspects of life. Challenging myself to be better than yesterday, is what I strive for every day.
