Melody was a high school teacher in both East Los Angeles and San Francisco. As a teacher she realized the power of technology and how it could be used as a creative outlet, so she decided to pursue web development. Melody has experience in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Node.js. Ruby on Rails, and AngularJS.

Melody’s passion is teaching and empowering others by sharing what she has learned. She started a JavaScript class at the Boys and Girls Club of Visitacion Valley and also teaches at San Quentin State Prison.
