Background: I’m a self-taught coder and even though I’ve been doing this for over 18 years I still learn many new things every day. I grew up on the New Hampshire seacoast, lived and worked in the Boston area for 12 years, before moving to central Vermont 13 years ago with my husband. What I like to do after work: Exercising, reading, or making jewelry. Favorite outdoor activity: Hiking with my 2 German Shepherds. Favorite place in Vermont: The hills near my house.
