While completing her A.S in Information Technology she gained the opportunity to complete her internship at RichWeb, Inc as a website designer that worked directly with their programmer. There she was exposed to back-end development (JavaScript, Pearl, PHP) to compliment her front-end development experience (design, content, HTML/CSS). After her internship, she gained the opportunity of a website designer with the company.
