Alexandra Lim

Front-End Developer

Hi, I'm Alex!

Alexandra Lim's profile picture

I’m a creative, solutions-focused developer who enjoys a good challenge. I currently specialize in building front-end applications that deliver marketing and sales results for customers. I care about accessibility, user experience, and improving processes wherever I can. I’m a collaborator and a lifelong learner who is passionate about mentoring new developers.

Based in Toronto, I am a graduate of the Web Development Immersive Certificate program at Juno College of Technology, formerly known as HackerYou College of Technology.

In my spare time, I love to read, make tangible things (like pie and socks) with my hands, and give my cat Sherlock a finite (his terms, not mine) amount of belly rubs. I also enjoy checking out new cafés and restaurants.
