About Rebekah

I’m textbook millennial but still love to read from an actual book. I miss the Radio Shack days. Someday, I’ll meet Jeff Probst.  If you know how to travel through space and time, I’ll be your companion.  If you have vanilla ice cream, I’ll be your best friend. All of my sibilings will tell you that I’m their favorite sister. Laying vinyl plank flooring is my jam. Most likely to be the crazy fan in the crowd at twenty one pilot and Relient K concerts. And, I don’t like birds.

My Calling

Blame my techy, geeky nature on a solid foundation of 90s technology, including dial-up internet.  When your mom teaches computer classes (circa Mavis Teaches Typing) and your dad is a network genius, being “good at computers.”  Built my first website in middle school. Fell in love with programming in high school. Doing it every since.

These Are A Few of My Favorite Things

Let’s be real. You didn’t show up on this page to read paragraph upon paragraph about my 20-some years of experience on this world. I’ll summarize for you with images.


Role Model

Grandma had succulents before succulents were cool. She also sold cell phones in her 80s.

Gray rocks


Gray has been my favorite color since college. And, yes, I know it’s technically a shade and not a color.

For a few months, I was a Starbucks barista.  Venti Americano with 2 pumps of white mocha and a splash of half and half.
