After graduating from UNC, I spent several years managing a fast-paced salon. I led our marketing direction, website layout, and I implemented the transition for our 20 person team to adopt a new business operations software. During this process, I’ve struggled with the failures of communication in software between users, tech support, sales, and software developers. Knowing that if I could combine my skills in communication with software development I could help create a better product, I joined Project Shift. Now I’ve gained the technical toolbelt to bridge these gaps and make software an experience that allows everyone’s voice to be heard.
