About Me

Hi, I’m Kim 😊

A picture of Kim smiling in front of a brick wall

I am a Software Engineer & Tech Coach at Tech Returners and I create and deliver programs to help underrepresented people refresh their skills after a career break & also programs for current technologists to upskill in Software Engineering and DevOps.

I love building things with the C# programming language and the .NET ecosystem and I enjoy learning about DevOps, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Games Development. As a Tech Content & Workshop Creator & Mentor, I help people engage with technology in fun and practical ways, whether they’re just starting out or looking to improve their skills at any stage of their careers.

I am passionate about creating things for tech education and love sharing my experiences with the community to encourage others to learn and grow in their technical skills and confidence.
