female web developer

Hi, I’m Jamie!

Blogger. Developer. Athlete. Master of Some.

I am a 30-something trying to do my best every day.

I am a female web developer. I am a writer. I am a woman trying to love her body. I am a teacher. I am a student. I am an athlete. I am a master of some.

How did I get here?

When I was in high school, I wanted to be a writer. It was a dream that I kept close and didn’t share. I have never been a fiction writer, my expertise has always been writing about my experiences and research.

Back in March 2020, I took a sketch-writing class through The Upright Citizens Brigade and loved it. I loved the dedicated time to writing, in any form, but wasn’t sure that sketch-writing was an area where I excelled.

Flash-forward a little to July 2020, when my ex-boyfriend walked-in, presented me with my house key, and hibachi (my order wasn’t even correct), and announced we were no longer together.

A little sad and with a lot to say, I took to putting all my feelings on paper–more specifically Medium. I shared what I wrote with a few of my close friends and realized that maybe this could be more than a single article.

On July 10, 2020, I launched jamiepittman.com to share my thoughts, feelings, and my journey through life.

I am a work-in-progress.

I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Does this sound familiar?

A lot of what I write about is related to my ongoing journey to be my best self physically and emotionally. Each week, I check-in on my week’s progress at being my best. It’s not going to win me a Pulitzer Prize and it sounds more like a diary entry than anything.

My relationship with my body and food is an ongoing process, but everyday things get a little bit better. My hope is that you can learn something from my struggles, or at least find comfort in knowing that you’re not the only one dealing with body and food issues.

I am a (female) web developer.

In my career, I’ve had A LOT of different jobs that have led me to where I am today: 9th-grade teacher, program coordinator, wellness coordinator, benefits analyst, and account manager. Not to mention years of experience in my family’s restaurants.

A little over three years ago, I pivoted to a career in web development. I like to share my experiences from the coding bootcamp to help other people be successful in changing careers. I like to share information that I have learned about JavaScript with my fellow developers who are just getting started.

What’s unique about me?

I’ve had a lot of unique experiences in my life, both personally and professionally, that I think will help people live a better life. I love to learn and be challenged. I hope you will learn something from my experiences!

I love helping people and animals–especially dogs.

My weaknesses include, but are not limited to chocolate chip cookies, brownies, diet soda, and Paul Rudd.

I love to laugh and make other people laugh. I enjoy watching intelligently written comedies and some reality TV. I am major fan of Rupaul’s Drag Race, and generally love and hold great respect for the drag community.
