A Biography, Short and Sweet

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
- Oscar Wilde
Chapter: I’m Amanda, a Multidisciplinary Frontend Engineer
I’m a final year Computer Science/Human-Computer Interaction student at the University of Waterloo. Recently, I studied abroad at the University of Leeds. Last summer, I worked as an engineering consultant at Deloitte Digital. Outside of work, I designed and developed products for social good at UW Blueprint. Previously, I worked in cybersecurity at Arctic Wolf and improved worker safety at the WSIB Innovation Lab. Additionally, I created impact in design and engineering at Tecsys, and as a Software Engineer at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC).

I’ve always believed there was something inherently human about tech and that’s what I intend to explore. Combining my passion for psychology, design and development, I hope to create inclusive products that will impact the lives of others.

Apart from designing and developing, catch me rock climbing, snowboarding and finding the latest mountains to hike. When I’m not being adventurous, I can be found reading a book or binging my favourite shows on Netflix. Learn more about my literary and literal adventures here.
