My journey as an ICT enthusiast started when I was in Secondary School. Then, I proceeded to study for a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) degree in Computer Science from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (Ogbomoso, Nigeria).

During the Industrial Attachment program in my fourth year, I worked at a Personal Finance Newspaper where I got interested in Web Technology and started learning HTML using Macromedia Dreamweaver 8. After graduating, I switched to using WordPress to build small websites and became a user of the Yoast SEO plugin. I worked as a Web Content Manager for a PR firm and learnt a lot about using WordPress on a live website.

In 2014, I moved to web hosting. Empathizing with the customer and a working knowledge of the product/platform has always helped me to understand and resolve customer issues effectively. Joining Yoast in March 2018 was thrilling after being a user of the free plugin for five years.

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my husband and my daughter. I also enjoy jogging in my neighbourhood every Saturday morning, and when the opportunity comes, travelling/sight seeing. I currently live in Lagos, Nigeria.
