Marissa Huysentruyt

Hello there!

I'm a front-end developer. Well actually, web development is my second career. I was a music educator and band director for seven years before I made the switch. What started out as a hobby has blossomed into a career where I can put my problem‐solving skills to the test. Once I really started to get into development, I realized how passionate I became about creating accessible, yet friendly user interfaces. My inner teacher loves that development is always changing, because that means I get to keep learning, growing and challenging myself.
