Lea's Story

Lea was an attorney, but she decided a career in the tech industry would be more fulfilling. When she became a learner at Kenzie Academy, she had no prior coding experience. Now, she’s started her new career as a Software Engineer at Ion Three and she credits Kenzie’s sense of network and community of learners for guiding her into this new field.

“I feel very comfortable that (Kenzie) has given me the kind of portfolio and experience that I need to be successful when I move forward.”

Lea's Story
"I don't think prospective students should be afraid about not having a background in coding, math, or computers. You can do it because Kenzie will help you do it."
