Liz Sanchez

Developer, Adventure Seeker, Animal Lover


I worked at the University of Denver for 8 years as an application developer before moving on to work for Ellucian, a global leader in software for higher education.

I grew up in a small town in southern Colorado and moved to Denver to go to college. I once aspired to study law or write for a living, but I found myself fixing computers and learning to code instead.

I love to code and learn new languages as much as I love pushing pixels around in Photoshop or kerning type.

I'm a creative problem solver and jack of all trades.

In my free time I run up mountains, ride my bike for hours, rock climb, and ski.
