ABOUT ME

I am a bright and motivated UX designer with a Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction + Design from the University of Washington. I am passionate about integrating a background in human behavior and human-centered design into creating engaging user experiences and interactions.

My passion for design stems from a desire to make meaningful things that have a positive impact on the way we live. However, at my core as a UX designer, I am a talented problem solver. I attribute my ability to respond to complex problems with simple and engaging design solutions to three core skills:

Research. My background in psychology and design research makes me proficient at identifying the right questions to ask, answering them, and translating insights into actionable design requirements.

Leadership. I may not always be the most skilled designer in the room, but my strong leadership abilities enable me to effectively organize groups and motivate those around me. I love collaborating with others, and my passion and work ethic help me lead by example.

Tools. My experience working on a wide range of projects has provided me a good sense of what tools to use and when. I am proficient with many design and prototyping tools, but more importantly I am able to quickly pick up new tools as I need them.

The user experience design process is often messy, chaotic, and ambiguous. I can be relied on to take an initial concept or idea, and apply concrete methods to reach a meaningful and tangible solution.

HOW I GOT HERE
Dartmouth
2010-2014


Drawn by the rigorous academic opportunities and strong sense of community, I went to Dartmouth with an interest in pursuing engineering. While I enjoyed building and creating, I felt that the engineering courses were missing something: I wanted to understand how people think and behave first before building and designing -- so I decided to major in psychology. In order to combine my interests in design, psychology, and engineering (and help like-minded students do the same), I helped create a new minor at Dartmouth called human-centered design.

Lextant
March-August, 2013


During a 5-month internship at Lextant, a design research firm in Columbus, OH, I gained experience with designing user experiences for a variety of different project types. I learned how to create research methodologies, analyze data, and translate findings into design deliverables.

Tether
2011-2014


As someone who has always adopted an entrepreneurial mindset, I co-founded a startup while I was at Dartmouth. Working on Tether (a social networking app) offered an opportunity to develop my own sense of design, shape the user experience for a new idea, and collaborate with developers to create an innovative solution that resonates with users.

University of Washington
2014-2015


My desire to focus further on the way people interact with technology has led me to the University of Washington, where I earned a Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction + Design (MHCI+D). This has experience has provided me with a strong grounding in the user-centered design process and valuable testing, prototyping, and communication skills.
