Projects

Fix HTML

Problem

As part of my work in digital marketing, I needed to quickly remove specific HTML tags from large sections of HTML code.

Solution

I created a JavaScript function to iterate through a list of tags and replace them with empty strings. I embedded this function into a simple web page to access it easily.

Problem

I needed a way to keep track of how many times I had chanted a mantra on a string of beads.

Solution

About

Jessica Davey

I never knew what I wanted to do when I grew up, but I spent a lot of time goofing off on the computer, writing HTML and simple programs in Visual Basic. 💾 Despite this early attraction, I completed a biology degree in Tacoma, WA, and a master’s in oceanography in La Jolla, CA. 🐬 And then I decided that what I really wanted to do was play music. 🎼🎤

This led me to achieving a degree in music at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts in Liverpool, England. 🇬🇧 It was the start of a long, tumultuous, and ultimately successful music career. I traveled the world as a piano vocalist and singer-songwriter. 🌎 Over 10 years, I performed at bars in Scotland, cruise ships in Australia, and hotels in Japan. ⛩ I even met a celebrity or two. 🌟

Eventually I came back to America and put away the rock-and-roll lifestyle. Remembering that I had enjoyed writing rudimentary code so much as a young person, I started learning web development. Through various books and on-line courses, I learned HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby, and SQL, including Object-Oriented Programming. 🖥 I was then hired by a large company in Nashville, TN where I publish web content in HTML, using a CMS. Recently I have been studying responsive web design, and creating high-fidelity wireframes and brand assets in Figma.
