Rachel Reilly

Software Engineer

I'm Rachel, a Software Engineer from Chicago and lifelong creator. My background as a visual artist and writer taught me how to make in a way that transcends disciplines. My creative work taught me to find solutions to my own problems by dissecting the work of others and adapting their solutions, as well as the importance of structure as a driving force in creation.

I take all of this into my approach to coding; I strive to write code that is clear, logical, and reusable. I enjoy learning new things and adding new techniques to my problem-solving toolbox. I write clean, well structured code with ES6-and-newer JavaScript features.
