Joy Pratt


Full Stack Developer

Radiologic Technologist, R.T.(R)(M)


I am currently attending Nashville Software School (Cohort 6). It is a six month web and software development boot-camp. I am learning many new tools, with a focus on the MEAN stack: MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js. I am also working on my Bachelor's in Information Technology with a concentration in Data Management at University of Phoenix.

I am open to many different opportunities at this point. Once I have more practical experience after school, I would love to integrate my healthcare background with some data management opportunities. I am very interested in how emerging data tools can help improve healthcare in many aspects, especially research.
