About

Kelly Lougheed

I'm a Los Angeles-based software developer with a passion for education. Programming has been a lifelong interest of mine, from the now-ancient Harry Potter fansite I built in 3rd grade to the computer science coursework I completed at Stanford.

After teaching high school Latin for several years, I developed an interest in educational technology and became determined to build my own apps (in particular, an app to track participation).

I currently work with Python and have a strong foundation in web-based technologies such as Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and HTML/CSS.
