“I’m your sassy, optimistic neighborhood web developer, and I’m excited to work on your next project!”

Sam Nelson Web Developer

Left-brained logic and right-brained creativity collide in the mind of Sam Nelson, BrownBoot’s dedicated front-end web developer. In addition to being a talented illustrator, she made the jump to coding a few years ago and never looked back.

Specializing in front-end web development, Sam focuses on translating the agency’s custom designs into dynamic, fully functional websites. Prior to joining the BrownBoots team, she was a freelance web designer and developer as well as an AmeriCorps member.

Sam graduated from UW-Eau Claire with bachelor’s degrees in illustration and German and completed a web development apprenticeship with Bloc. When she’s not learning new programming languages, she’s catching up on her favorite manga, anime and video games.
