Lindsay Brown is a millennial software developer and project manager who ran for the US House of Representatives (a.k.a.

Lindsay is a full-stack web developer with strong familiarity of the MERN stack, SQL databases, and AWS architecture. During her political campaign of 2018, Lindsay utilized the NJ voter rolls to develop her own open source canvassing app, utilizing the Google Maps API and the Data Science Toolkit library. She is currently working on a sales and data collection tool for FDA Outsourcing (503B) Facilities that specialize in drug shortage products. Lindsay is a fan of clean, well-commented code and enjoys fiddling with CSS to perfect frontend UI and UX components.
