Amy DeGenaro Software Engineer

About

Full-stack JavaScript developer with a background in environmental studies, CRM database management, non-profit fundraising, and publishing. I decided to make a career change in 2018 and attended the Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy. I'm passionate about telling stories with data, organizing information, and learning how things work "behind the scenes." Looking for opportunities in New York or Boston to make a difference with my work.

When I'm not coding, I enjoy crochet, art & calligraphy, puzzles, gaming, exploring urban parks, and searching for the best weather app.
