Stephanie Lopez

 

Prior to Tech Elevator I was...

working at a debt collections company as an Administrative Assistant.

The students at Tech Elevator...

challenge themselves to improve every day.

The best part of my day is...

seeing a student’s face light up after they’ve solved a coding problem.

Stephanie graduated from Indian Hills College with an Associate of Arts degree. She originally moved to Columbus to pursue nursing at Mount Carmel. She realized while she enjoyed helping others, nursing wasn’t her passion. She spent the next five years in the collections industry in various roles.

Her love for streamlining and automating process, and desire to create positive user experiences, led her to start researching where she could learn how to program. After comparing her options and meeting with a friend, she decided Tech Elevator was her best next step in building a fulfilling career. After graduating, she has been able to combine her love for helping others with her new coding skills by supporting the Columbus campus as an Academic Fellow.
