I started my career as a graphic designer in 2009. I love typography, print, graphic design, problem solving and coding. My passions led me to become a UX designer.
Over the past 10 years, I have been driving engaging products and experiences across various industries and products, including e-commerce, design systems and web, mobile & enterprise applications. I have built and led UX teams and advocated for a more prominent place at the table.
My prior work experience has revealed how important it is to be a part of a highly collaborative and diverse team. I naturally thrive in that type of environment as I find that it yields the best results. Through my experiences I have found that I am not only passionate about good design, but also how efficiently the design process is utilized across the company. I became a Certified SAFe® 5 Agilist to be able to aid any sized team/company in lean agile practices.
I have many interests outside of UX & product design. One might say too many. I will admit that I am a bit of a serial hobbyist.
Swimming Long Distances
Usually across large bodies of water. My more notable crossings: The Chesapeake Bay x2 (4.4mi), Lake Champlain (4mi), and Lake Willoughby (5mi)
Good typography is the sans to my serif.
Calligraphy & Gilding
Thanks to the fabulous calligrapher and teacher, Debby Reeltz, I have developed a strong affection for the metal nib.
All the Dogs
There is a special place in my heart for rescues. I am a former foster and have adopted the one and only Tica (tee·kuh), which is short for Helvetica.

Crocheting & Knitting
My Nana 💕 taught me when I spent a week with her during a school break in 2003. So, I was a fan before it became trendy… just saying.
I suggested reading Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men (Caroline Criado-Perez), if you doubt the merits of feminism.
