Lex has always had an interest in technology and software development. After working as a tech support analyst for two years, she realized that she wanted to pursue a career in software development. Lex started to participate in several of the tech interest groups around Kansas City such as Code For KC, Kansas City Women in Tech, and Launch Code.
She had the pleasure of mentoring for DjangoGirls KC and RailsGirls KC back in 2018, and later was accepted into the Launch Code program were she learned programming languages like Python and Java. With these skills, she was able to create her very first web application from scratch. Lex is currently an apprentice with Crema and will be working on her own personal project using TypeScript and React frame work.
