About Marney, in her words

As the daughter of a commercial fisherman, I learned that hard work and determination would get you far in life.

As a recent graduate from a full-time computer programming bootcamp, I had to endure many challenging moments. But despite the difficulties, I always persevered because coding is one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. Nothing feels better than using your own ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness to solve a hard problem.

I haven’t always known what I wanted to do with my life, but no matter what I was doing I always gave it 100%. I spent my first couple years of college studying to be a painter, then eventually made the transition to becoming a Dental Lab Technician. I have always been very creative and enjoyed using my hands. I worked as a Lab-Tech for 5 years before realizing I wanted to be valued for more than just my ability to work quickly.
During my years as a tech I learned how to:

  • Tackle deadlines and work under pressure.
  • Work well independently and as part of a team.
  • Communicate effectively throughout the lab.
  • Pay extreme attention to detail.

In addition, to these skills I also became an efficient problem solver and begin to view my work as a puzzle I had to do everyday. It was this type of thinking that made me want to learn how to code.
I have been able to take all of my seemingly unrelated soft and hard skills and utilize them within one career path. I get to use my passion to create, emotional intelligence, communication skills, problem solving abilities, and determination every day I sit down to write code.

As a student at Epicodus I learned the fundamentals of HTML, CSS, Javascript, C#, and React. A regular school day simulates the schedule of a full-time developer. We programmed in pairs from 8-5, Monday-Friday. We were given daily assignments that test our technical knowledge, problem solving abilities, and best of all, made us write a whole lot of code. This has been an incredibly fulfilling and enriching shift and I am very excited for the next step in my programming career.

Some of my other passions include; painting, cooking and baking, rock climbing, pilates, making kombucha, playing violin, and climbing mountains/walking through the woods with my dog Bruce!
