“Liberty A. Alpaca” Has 2 years experience and is looking for a new role as a Front End Web Developer in Portland, OR or Remote.

I want to gobble up new learning! I have nearly 2 years of experience writing XML to build forms and edit legacy code; I want to get out there and use React, or static site generators, or Vue.js! I want to learn more about back end tech while primarily serving as a front end developer. I'm uniquely suited to dev jobs because prior to developer work, I worked support and as a coach and mentor for students, and so my communication skills separate me from the pack.
