About Me 👋🏻

Leading UX design and product strategy for agile projects - from inception to completion. I foster a culture that energizes all stakeholders to embrace user testing, documentation, and formal product launches to ensure the integrity of relevant, adoptable solutions.

I’m a reliable teammate who is sought after across departments to be a sounding board and solution designer for complex and vague problems. I adapt to changing business priorities and am quick to understand, synthesize, and deliver results that maintain strategic alignment to the core product vision.

I’m constantly seeking feedback as graciously as possible so that I may continue to grow as a designer. Beyond my day to day, I enjoy synthesizing my experiences into writing to contribute to the online product design community. Outside of work, I love road tripping in my camper van.
