While studying architecture at Carnegie Mellon, I discovered HCI and found all of the things that I loved about architecture: deeply understanding people and designing creative solutions for their needs and goals.
My growth mindset also appreciated the iterative nature of digital design work so I decided to shift my focus to UX by adding HCI as a second major.
My design work has impacted 90,000+ employers and 1M+ job candidates. I’m currently designing experiences to support GoodHire’s strategic shift to help larger businesses run background checks on job candidates. There are exciting new sets of problems to solve when you are designing for large HR teams.
I’m excited about giving back to the design community. My gratitude for what I’ve learned from mentors over the years inspired me to teach UX students through DesignLab and I’m loving it.
I believe that every great product begins with a great story. Research helps us understand the story of people’s lives and this reveals problems they have and key product opportunities.
Once I understand people and their problems, I love the process of identifying what solution will truly solve these problems and figuring out the phasing of the product features.
Looking at the experience as a whole is my strength. I love looking at it as a whole because great experiences extend beyond the screen. I am experienced in sketching, rapid wireframing, and prototyping.
