About Me

Hello, my name is Nicole and I'm from Atlanta, GA. I'm taking part in a Data Engineering Fellowship with a 4% acceptance rate. With this fellowship, I'm increasing my skills in Python, SQL, and big data technologies like Spark, Hadoop, and Airflow. I'm also an Advanced QA Analyst for Warner Bros. Discovery. I'm the lead software tester for a team of developers in charge of migrating petabyte-scale data to the AWS cloud for over 2,000 CNN employees. I utilize AWS in this position, like S3 and Redshift. I also use Java and IntelliJ to automate tests. I'm currently searching for entry-level data engineering jobs. But in the meantime, I'm completing side projects to showcase my data engineering skills. Please feel free to visit my LinkedIn, GitHub, or personal website to learn more!
