About Me

/Who Am I


👋 Hello there, I’m Alyssa.
I have many interests. By day, I am a software developer primarily using React and TypeScript. By night, I am problem solver, entrepreneur, creator, writer, and lifelong learner.

If you’re reading this and you want to connect, don’t be a stranger. I love meeting and connecting with new people. I am also available for consulting and web design work. You can reach me using my contact form at the bottom of this page.

Check out my GitHub to see what I’m currently building.

Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.

testimonials

Alyssa Melendez is that rare combination — someone who is as dependable and hard-working as she is talented and smart. I’ve seen her at work in both a writing class and a college newsroom. In both settings her work has been better than excellent. This includes a full-scale re-design and re-implementation of a college newspaper website that any advanced designer would be proud of — yet Alyssa pulled if off as a college freshman, and all by herself. Fellow students think of her as a great colleague. She’ll be a credit to any organization she joins.
JAMES TOBIN, JOURNALISM PROFESSOR AND ADVISOR
Alyssa is a highly technical, yet creative individual, who has developed complex applications and aesthetically-pleasing websites for our clients. Thank you Alyssa for being a pleasure to work with and helping us take our business to the next level.
BRIAN MELENDEZ, VIRTUAL SUPPORT TEKS
I mentored Alyssa and worked with her directly during her summer internship at Union Home Mortgage. She is a talented developer with a strong ability to quickly pick up on new tech and creatively solve business challenges. Alyssa was a key team member in developing, testing and implementing our Design System from scratch. She was able to learn React.js very quickly with the team and her keen eye for detail and creative ideas helped us improve and innovate our UI library and the documentation associated with it. In addition, she also lead the re-design and UX for our Payment Portal App. Her back-end dev chops gained momentum as we worked on redesigning the new Union Home Mortgage corporate website as she touched many different layers of this project.
TESSA NEWBACHER, UNION HOME MORTGAGE
Alyssa is a smart front-end developer. She has a hunger for learning new things and passion for improving a UI/UX. She was able to adept to a team environment quickly. She became a contributing team member in no time. She enjoys working with a team as well as alone. I would love to have her join my team again. She will prove to be a great asset for any team.
