Colleen Leonard

Senior Front-End Developer

After discovering online code courses, Colleen decided to make a career change into Front-End Development. She has a B.A. in Communication Studies from Central Washington University and graduated from the Front-End Engineering program at The Iron Yard in Durham in 2015. With an extensive background in WordPress, she enjoys creating simple and easy-to-use sites that have engaging interactions. A lover of animation and design, she believes the web should be fun and informative for all.

She is an avid learner and adventurer and spends her free time with an ever-growing list of hobbies and experiences. Over the years, she has played roller derby, road-tripped through 45 states, performed stand-up comedy, and has taught herself a myriad of skills. She loves the outdoors and spends much of her time outside hiking and stand-up paddleboarding.
