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
➡️ 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.
