Hi, I'm Marcela. As a Senior Engineer at Cantina, I work on front-end, back-end and mobile development for our clients. I have a passion for creating accessible products that facilitate meaningful insights and interactions for users. While at Cantina, I’ve worked on Empower Retirement, Your Call Football, and Toast, a restaurant POS system.
As a female and minority, I support my fellow ladies in pursuing careers in coding and developing their skills. I’ve taught classes on AngularJS, ReactJS, and most recently Redux for Girl Develop It, a nonprofit that exists to provide affordable and judgment-free opportunities for women interested in learning web and software development.

Other Fun Facts:
In high school, I took a Japanese language class to thank Hayao Miyazaki for writing and directing some of my favorite stories, from Spirited Away to Princess Mononoke, with prominent environmental themes and strong female protagonists. I have an intense interest in machine learning and deep learning as well as augmented reality. I also enjoy creating educational games that are actually fun!
