About Me

About Me

Me My name is Grace and I was born and raised in Victoria, BC, Canada. I still live at home with my parents and will do so until I can afford to live on my own. I’ve been known to be shy when you first meet me but then I tend to open up after awhile. My hobbies include: reading, watching anime and movies, knitting, crochet, cross stitching, working on my website and taking my dog to the park and the beach.

I’ve been around a computer since I was 12 and I taught myself HTML at age 14 although I wasn’t very good at it back then. I did eventually take a course in Web Design at CDI College but I never found work in it here. And I just liked doing it for my own personal web site, not anyone else.

I worked in the restaurant business as a cook for 6 years, but after 6 years I realized it was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I went back to school and took the Medical Office Assistant Course at Camosun College and graduated in 2009. I struggled to find work in the field but I have finally found a great job that I love and have been here for 4.5 years now!
