about

I have a unique ability to link design and business outcomes, build excitement for UX, and find clarity in ambiguity. I’m a systems thinker and large-group facilitator. I focus on accessibility, diversity, equity, and inclusion in my work.

my design story:

➡️ Summer 2015

Get some money to test a business idea. The idea fails, but I’m surprised by how much I loved making the website.

➡️ December 2016

Graduate early with a bachelor’s degree in business. I like the idea of building things but I’m not sure exactly what I want to do yet. Decide to try marketing since I love writing and get to use my graphic design skills.

➡️ January 2017

Collaborate with an engineer at my company on the design of our app, learn what UX is and immediately become obsessed. Start a freelance design business, learn HTML, CSS and a little Javascript.

➡️ August 2017

Start workingwith a product design mentor to build out my UX portfolio & skillset. Continue freelance work.  

➡️ October 2018

Begin my first full-time product design role. Start volunteering as a mentor with SheDesigns to help others make the same career switch I did.

✏️ In my free time I write poetry and creative nonfiction. My work has been published in the magazines Blue Earth Review, Pithead Chapel, Juxtaprose, Sunspot Lit, and Feminine Collective.
