Hi, I'm Sarah

Hi there. I’m Sarah. I’m a developer at Mess, a dev & design agency in Chicago, IL.

I love coding, design, and building things with empathetic teams.

About me

I'm Sarah, a full stack developer based in Chicago, IL. I spend my time at Mess building sites for a range of clients using Wordpress, BuilderIO, Javascript, Vue, PHP and a range of other languages, frameworks and content management systems.

Before that, I was able to combine my skills in civics and tech to work at the University of Iowa Public Policy Center. There, I developed data processing scripts using PostgreSQL and Python, developed the University of Iowa Public Policy Center website using Drupal, PHP and JavaScript and worked on various projects with researchers using JavaScript frameworks such as SvelteKit.

When I'm not obsessively coding, I play guitar, bake, and explore Chicago.
