Hello, I'm Amy Hogue.

I'm a Full Stack Software Engineer.

A three-year-old misspelled 'Amy' and gave me the nickname 'Yam.' It stuck.



I am excited to focus on creating clean and engaging web experiences that help humanity. Before becoming an Engineer, I worked in Social Work and Clinical Research. I got into the tech sector because I realized I could have a lot more impact on humanity and in a lot more realms if I learned to code.

I am a Rubyist at heart, but I'm borderline addicted to learning new technologies and I'm always looking for ways to level up. Along with Ruby I've used Ruby on Rails for 2 years along with HTML5 and CSS3. I've also used JavaScript, WordPress and PHP to deliver the best product for clients' needs. My strongest soft skill is writting and communicating technical ideas to less-technically-inclined people.

Before coding:

  • 2 years as a Nutrition Educator

  • 2 years in Clinical Research

  • 2 years as a Case Manager for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


I've traveled to 17 countries and my experiences include: teaching English to Monks in Nepal and working on an archaeology field project in Peru.

I even learned to code in Brazil in 2017. I got good at Ruby and remained terrible at Portuguese.
