About Me

As a user experience designer, my objective is to design the best product experience by evaluating users’ needs and goals. I like to follow a user-centered design methodology by defining the scope of a design problem, doing user research to understand who the target audience is and how their needs align with the design scope, sketch and design concepts and ideate, create prototypes to test on users, and iterate based on user feedback. My specialties include design ideation, visual and interaction design, and prototyping.

I currently work as a UX Designer at Moz. I focus on their SEO toolset, Moz Pro. I have had the opportunity to work at Iqvia (formally IMS Health) as a UX Designer, Amazon as an interaction designer for Fire Tablets and Amazon's Unlocked Phone project, Alaska Airlines as a usability analyst intern on the Alaska Airlines website and with REI as a student researcher. I completed my M.S. degree at the University of Washington’s Human Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) evening Masters program getting a foundation in user-centered design and human computer interaction in June 2016.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending my free time traveling to new places, hiking, backpacking, hanging out with friends, painting with acrylics and drawing. I’m working on being a more active writer, learning how to be a mentor, and learning the joys of being a first time home owner.
