Hi! My name is Kelly Murray, and I’m excited to be the new Campus Operations Manager with The Iron Yard powered by Smashing Boxes in Durham.
I don’t remember the first time I used a computer, but I’m pretty sure The Oregon Trail was involved. By middle school I was checking out HTML for Dummies at my local library so I could build activism websites, and at thirteen I was teaching computer classes for seniors. It’s been all computers all the time since then!
In 2013, I received a Master’s Degree in Public History from North Carolina State University. Since then I’ve been a User Experience and Front-End consultant and developer. I also recently worked as the Director of Student Success and a Diversity Steward for Dev Bootcamp in San Francisco.
When I’m not bathed in the glow of a monitor, I’m spending too much time playing video games, knitting, practicing yoga, or deciding what my superhero name should be in case I ever wake up with super strength.
