Alumni Stories: Ani Turner - Software Engineer at Workfront
June 15, 2020
Ani had a unique path into a career in tech. Originally earning a Bachelor's degree in psychology in Idaho, she soon moved to Salt Lake City where she unknowingly found her passion for tech while working as a billing clerk.
I already felt very frustrated, maybe I wasn't in the right place. After a while, things started clicking and I was like, "okay, maybe I can do this." With programming, I was able to build things every single day.
It was two weeks before I finished the program at V School that I got the offer at Workfront. The developers on my team tell me to this today "we are so thankful you're on our team because you bring a different light." That's what women do – bring a unique spirit to a company, to a team, to programming. I do think there should be more women within the tech field. You make good money, you have wonderful flexible hours. If you desire to become a mom – which is still one of my goals one day – I still think it's possible with this field.
I received a lot of motivation and confidence from people who have accomplished the things that we dream of accomplishing while at V School. It helped me to know that I can become that one day.
This is possible, you just have to move on and move forward in life.
