Hello, I’m Carrie! 👋
I am a business analyst turned front end engineer who builds elegant, maintainable, and performant applications and websites for a range of organizations.

While one might might not think that business analysis has much to do with development, I’ve found all that experience searching for data anomalies has helped me become an expert at identifying bugs and areas for improvement in front end code. During my time as a business analyst, it was my job to liaise between sales and technical teams, where I gathered requirements for projects and translated business needs into technical requirements. Through this experience, I learned the value of user experience, and the importance of approaching projects with the end user in mind.
When I’m not building delightful front end experiences, you can find me window shopping at Sephora, practicing the piano, or relaxing with my fur fam. 😸😸😸😸
- UI Development
Using modern front end techniques and the WordPress REST API, I create sophisticated applications built on WordPress.
- Design Systems
Design systems make collaboration easier, and I use them to organize front end code, keeping it scalable, maintainable, and performant.
- Open Source
I maintain a few front end-focused and WordPress-specific open source projects that help developers do their job better.
- Public Speaking
I have given several front end-focused talks at WordCamps in the Western US, and have also made a few guest appearances on industry podcasts.
