Hi, I’m Olivia. Web development had been a favourite hobby of mine growing up. As I got older, my attention shifted to other things, and my journey in web development came to a halt. Cut to a couple years after graduating with a History degree, when I found myself without passion or direction in where I wanted my career to go. I started looking into web development, just to pick the hobby up again, and realised that this was what I wanted to spend my days doing. I began studying in my spare time, and gained enough skills to eventually join the team at Zeal!
The past few years have been full of big changes, particularly moving from my home country of Canada to Leeds. I don’t feel like as much of an outsider anymore, but there are still some phrases or references I have to ask about. Add in my career change and needless to say, I’m learning something (or multiple things!) every day.
I’m thrilled to be joining Zeal. I’m surrounded by so many talented people who not only provide vast amounts of knowledge, but are also great company.
