Sara Hjelt

I'm Sara, a full stack web developer working at Mainland Creative in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I attended the Coding Boot Camp at UNC a couple of years ago and have been working as a developer ever since. I've always loved computers, technology, and problem-solving, and seeing a website or app come to life never gets old for me. I've built several full stack applications, but I mainly focus on the front end nowadays.

I live in Durham with my husband Joe, our dog Max, and our two cats, Usagi and Cloud. I love Radiohead, Sailor Moon, hot beverages of all varieties, and watching/analyzing movies … particularly bad ones.
