About Me

WC1_3886_hb

Hey there! I’m Heather and I’m a Front-End Web Developer based in Toronto. I love creating beautiful looking websites backed by equally beautiful code. I love working with HTML5, CSS3/Sass, Responsive Design, JavaScript, jQuery, and WordPress.

I spent the last two years as a visual merchandiser creating store and window displays, and realized I have an obsession with making. Without previous coding experience, I took a Ladies Learning Code workshop and was hooked. I quickly enrolled at HackerYou, taking both the part-time HTML and CSS course and Front-End Development Bootcamp.

If I'm not coding I'm either hunting down a new brunch place, planning a DIY project, or trying to teach myself calligraphy.

Interested in working with me? Send me an email - hello[at]heatherbanks.ca. I'm always available for coffee!
