Hey there! My name is Olivia Mark, and I'm a programmer, rock climber, yoga enthusiast, drummer, and koala lover. I am currently attending Park University on scholarship with a computer science major and a criminal justice minor. I hope to go into computer forensics or continue my role as an automation engineer.

I speak English fluently, I'm studying German and Japanese, and I can order a pizza in Spanish. Aside from spoken languages, my strongest object-oriented language is Java with Python following closely behind. I am fluent in Robot Framework and Gherkin with a myriad of test suites built in both. In addition, I am familiar with JavaScript, HTML, and C. I am a strong believer that once you learn one (complex) language, that you can learn any language. It comes from a deep-rooted understanding of algorithmic thinking and pseudocode. I'm fairly experienced with Excel, Word, and Powerpoint, along with their Google alternatives. I can also type at ~80wpm.

In addition to computer science, I also love environmental science, percussive music, and helping our community grow stronger. I consistently volunteer at animal shelters, climb rocks, play in symphonies, and participate in local government.

Have I mentioned my passion for involving young women with technology?
