Laure Fischer

Developer, America's Test Kitchen


After graduating from Northwestern in 2011 with a degree in Economics and Philosophy, I jumped into the rigorous world of management consulting, where the potential for learning was endless and the need to learn quickly was essential. I counseled companies on everything from customer experience, to regulatory compliance, to social media management, and relished the chance to gain new insights with each new project.

While I loved the analytical problem-solving involved in my work and was thrilled with the business experience I had gained, I realized I wanted to apply my skills to starting my own company one day, and that I wanted to learn how to build a product myself, and soon found my way to General Assembly’s WDI course. After completing the course, I was very happy to accept a position as a junior web developer at America's Test Kitchen in Brookline. I've been continually impressed by how well GA prepared me for the role, and am enjoying the opportunity to keep learning and building my skills every day.
