Lexi Adams spent two years at Weber State University for Interior Design but decided to take a different path and go into Web Development instead. She graduated from Ogden Weber Applied Technology with a certification in Web Development. She found a great passion in balancing technicality and creativity while crafting websites. In her free time, Lexi enjoys spending time with her boyfriend, lounging at home watching TV or movies, doing any type of craft project, and going to the gym.
After graduating from Ogden-Weber Technical College with a Web and Graphic Design Certificate, Maggie Robison has pursued a career as a Web Developer. Maggie continues to learn more about programming and keep up with the most current coding languages/systems.
Maggie is an adrenaline junkie with a passion for action sports. When she is not developing websites, you can find her on the lake wake surfing, fly fishing the river, snowboarding, or lifting in the gym.

5) What are your favorite productivity hacks? How do you stay focused?
LEXI: I listen to music to help me focus.
MAGGIE: My job gets pretty lonely so to stay productive, I listen to music, a podcast, or any soft sound in the background. It keeps me going through my day.

LEXI: I don’t know about a quote, but I do have a punny pun! How do you stay warm in any room?
