Ellen Wondra is a human who lives in western Washington. Professionally, she writes code. Ellen cares a lot about her customers' needs, and believes in using good engineering practices to support these needs. You can never write perfect code, but you can build a robust system that uses smart processes to find problems before they reach your end user.
In her personal life, Ellen likes to express her creative side. She has created music, she paints, knits, and does cross-stitch. She has tried most fiber arts that she's heard of. Ellen has two very small cats and two very large dogs, and they're all named after fighter pilots on the Battlestar Galactica, because she's a big nerd too.
