  • What is your favorite part of working at Galatea?
    • I love that Galatea provides so many opportunities to learn new things. I came to my project with minimal front end experience and now I work with these technologies every day! Galatea is filled with many great Team Leads that truly enjoy teaching others. The company also provides the flexible communication that is necessary when fostering a collaborative and collegiate atmosphere.
  • What is your favorite Galatea moment?
    • I remember back to my first day at Galatea- everyone made me feel so welcome! That was a really good moment. Some of my favorite times at Galatea are releasing features into production that I have worked very hard on. It is awesome knowing that something I built is actually being used.
  • What do you like to do outside of Galatea?
    • I love trying my hand at cooking different Chinese dishes. I also love traveling- my favorite trip was when I went to Hawaii last year. It was a lot of fun and everything was so beautiful!
