About Me

Maren Vernon

My name is Maren Vernon, and I’m the founder of Codified Concepts, LLC.

When I’m not developing websites for clients, you can find me teaching coding and computational concepts to others. I discovered my love of computer science after years of rising in the ranks as a managing editor at Random House. No matter the job, I often found myself creating training manuals, filming instructional videos, and thinking a lot about how to empower my learning audience and the tools they needed for success. Now, combining my twin passions for education and coding, I work with the Scratch Foundation’s Programs team as a Learning Resource Designer, developing new creative learning resources and engagement experiences for Scratchers and educators. As a lifelong learner, I embrace the 4P’s (Projects, Passions, Peers, and Play) and can often be found tinkering on anything from crafts to 3D printing to robots to emerging technologies, along with my favorite pursuit of solving coding mysteries.

As a web developer, my passion is helping small businesses, small non-profits, solopreneurs, authors, and creatives establish a professional online presence tailored to their personality and their audience. I bring my penchant for organization and attention to detail, years of project collaboration experience, copyediting and proofreading abilities, communication skills, and my passion for clean code and user-friendly design to each project. I also leverage the Adobe Create Suite for photo editing and graphics creation.
