Who We Are

My name is Christie Trent and I am a passionate programmer who has dabbled in graphics, animation, and blogging for over 20 years in the technology industry. I am a Staff Writer at Hill Tree Roastery, and I blog on my side projects Wild and Wanderin' and Plant-Based Nerd.

I was born and raised in West Virginia but moved around a lot working on projects for the US Navy, Marines, Department of Veterans Affairs, Higher Education, the medical industry and more.

You can find a more thorough history on my GitHub Resume / Portfolio page or find more Social Networking links on my @theplantbasednerd LinkTree.
