Hi everyone, I'm Mariel. I'm a lawyer turned policy analyst and I'm exploring making my next turn developer! I was always interested in engineering things and technical subjects, but somewhere along the line convinced myself I "couldn't" instead of realizing I just hadn't learned and done the work yet. So, I'm starting from scratch and seeing where it goes. I've loved lurking here and reading posts and learning from you all. My favorite non-coding hobby is probably coloring, and I'm also training for the next Disney Princess Half Marathon!
