About Me

Hi! šŸ‘‹ My name is Carol Bruggeman. After working in healthcare as a physician assistant for several years, I have spent the last 1+ years working toward a career change as a front end developer. After caring for patients in the emergency department throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, I found that my priorities and career goals had undergone a major shift. I began looking for a career that would allow me to use my problem-solving skills, strong background in teamwork, and creativity while also leaving me with more time and energy to spend with my loved ones. As I researched opportunities in the tech industry, I quickly realized that a career as a front end developer was a perfect fit. I decided to enroll in the Skillcrush Break Into Tech Program and relished in the challenge of learning a completely new skill set. I have grown to find that building websites and web applications is both fulfilling and fun, and I would love to code your next website or collaborate on a project! When Iā€™m not coding, you can find me in the kitchen experimenting with new vegan recipes, reading a horror novel for my spooky book club, or hanging out with my dogs.
