I am a .NET Software Developer currently working on a project to integrate healthcare solutions with the Ministry of Health’s National Health Index. I have a passion for the industry as a whole and am keen to share my path and more importantly, to encourage females to invest in a career in I.T.
I am a junior Java developer in an agile scrum team at Orion Health. I am currently working on improving medical documents for clinicians, trying to decrease the amount of time spent on documentation. I like to encourage girls to enter into the IT industry because it’s a great place to work & and am passionate about breaking the stereotypes associated with being a computer geek.
