Melissa Hoo

Web Developer

My Story

Hello, my name is Melissa Hoo. Since last year when my web development career started, things have taken off. Though having graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Neuroscience, I've spent the last year learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other web development skills.

Why? The web is a place where small businesses can fluorish, information is rapidly spread, and change is ignited. I'm looking to obtain a full-time web developer position in order to be a part of this change.


Previously coded in HTML but then converted into a WordPress website, PrepareMCAT is a resource that has helped over 200 students prepare for the Medical College Admissions Test. After having completed my own test last year and realizing medical school was not the right path for me, I combined my passion for coding with my knowledge of biology to provide an intuitive, informative research to aid other students in their test preparation. The goal of this website was to distill large amounts of scattered information found on the web into an easily navigatable, aesthetically pleasing website.
