I got into coding because I was dealing with PTSD and my husband, a web developer recommended I try it.
When I coded, my brain stopped cycling the trauma I had been through. I found the group Moms Can: Code to support me in my motherhood and coding journey and the amazing program at Flatiron School to keep me engaged and part of a wonderful educational community.
And then all the pieces fit together to get me in tech.
