Alex Heflin

Developer

Alex first came to Gaslight as a college co-op, and the company felt so much like home that she stayed on as a part-time developer when classes started back up again. A second co-op went just as well, so it was a no-brainer to offer Alex a full-time job as a developer.

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Communication Design from the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP). But on any given day at Gaslight, you’ll find her knee deep in code. She’s a pro at HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and immersing herself in Ember.js and Rails. Alex even helped out as a teaching assistant at one of our Ruby on Rails classes.

When she was younger, Alex customized her MySpace page, but she didn’t realize she was actually playing around with computer code until she went to college. Originally, she wanted to be a graphic designer but quickly found herself drawn to the structure and analytical nature of programming.

Alex lives in Cleves, and she loves live music and comic books. The Sandman comic book series is her all-time favorite.
