Ana was an accomplished nurse at a local outpatient surgery center in Boulder, prior to learning about Techtonic. She had achieved success within the medical industry but was looking to pivot her career. Software Development had always been an interest, and she utilized online education platforms and even attended boot camps prior to joining Techtonic. But without real-world experience, the value was not substantial. After hearing about the Techtonic Apprenticeship from her husband, Ana decided to apply. “I had made the decision to change my career and move into development, and Techtonic really gave me that next step to make the dream happen. I enjoyed the aspect of helping people as a nurse, but it was wearing me down and my options were limited,” Ana explained.
