My Background

My name is Ashley, and I am the owner, designer and developer for The Southern Tech Lady. I decided to start this business because I wanted to merge my love of coding and web design with my love of creative arts. I have been a software developer for over 12 years, and I have worked in the public and private sectors. I primarily code in C, C++, Python, and VBA.  I have multiple years of on-the-job experience using SQL, Docker, Gitlab, and Ansible as well. I am also the owner and designer of a stationery company called I Have Plans for You where I sell stationery that I draw and hand letter.

I decided that I was tired of working within the confounds of the corporate world and decided to branch off into the world of UX/UI Design and Web/App Development. I started The Southern Tech Lady to share my portfolio and to blog about my process. I want this to be an informative and friendly space where women and minorities can learn and feel seen in the tech world.

I am a mom to two bright and beautiful daughters. I am married to The Tech Gentleman. I enjoy drawing, dancing, singing, crochet, reading and volunteering.
