a little about me.

If you've made it this far, you already know my name is Jess! I am a full-time front end web developer for Wilson Language Training and a part-time bartender at a local watering hole. I studied Business Management and Computer Information Systems at Westfield State University and graduated with 2 Bachelor degrees in December 2014.

At the age of 17, I fell in love with the restaurant industry and decided I wanted to open my own restaurant. Luckily, during one of my first computer classes I fell in love with programming and decided that was a pretty promising backup career to focus on until a winning lottery ticket fell into my lap.

During my freshman year of college, I was diagnosed with my superpower, combined-type ADHD. While it certainly makes some things in my life more difficult, I have found that it is the reason for my creative mind and my ability to hyperfocus on the things I love to do the most!

Along with my love for both design and development work, I am also passionate about the importance of web accessibility and strive to make all of my client's websites accessible according to the Web Content Accessibliity Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 set forth by W3C®.

A few of my friends started their own businesses and reached out to me for help with things like designing their logos and building their websites. In learning that these types of services are not always affordable for people starting out with a limited budget, I created Jess Rodier Digital Solutions with the goal of ensuring these type of things are always within reach.
