I developed a helpful Ionic app that enabled pet owners to link with their local vet, store important details, add petcare product reminders, track weight, etc.

While at EHD, I worked as the main front-end developer during the first version of the app while working closely with the back-end developers responsible for the RESTful API. On the second iteration of the development, I worked as the project manager and was responsible for planning sprints, QA, and releases.
