My name is Chazona Baum, and I am a self-taught full-stack developer with diverse experiences in industries ranging from food service to veterinary medicine to insurance.

My love of code sprang from my love of language. Where some see confusing symbols, I see an elegant form of communication and expression, and a way for people to extend their capabilities and accomplish the previously impossible.

I intend to utilize my customer-centric background and technical skills to build a career in advocacy and developer relations.

To see what I'm doing now, check out my #100DaysOfCode Log.
