Carrie spent the first eight years of her career wrangling sales data in the tech industry. While on work assignment in the UK, she attended a blogging workshop where she was introduced to WordPress. After spending several weekends learning about WordPress child themes, Carrie set up her first WordPress site and realized WordPress and front-end development is where her true passion lies.
After moving back to California, Carrie had an opportunity to pursue her passion, and enrolled in the Graphic & Interactive Design program at Foothill College where she learned about the graphic design process, and how to properly write HTML and CSS. Before graduating her program, she created her first theme from scratch on the Genesis framework, and realized that developing on WordPress is what she wanted to do for a living. Carrie currently works as a Front-End Developer for WebDevStudios.
When she’s not developing websites, you can find Carrie at home cuddling with her three cats K2, Whitney, and Minnie, enjoying a latte or cold brew at a nearby coffee shop, or exploring the greater San Francisco Bay Area with her husband Darren.
Carrie will be speaking on Creating Themes with Atomic Design.
