Hello! This is me!

About Me

I studied graphic design in college and completed a certificate in UX Design in 2022.. My design process is to empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. Better user experiences are created using data and usability tests.

 

Having spent a combined 17 years in retail management and the healthcare field, I am able to empathize, actively listen, and problem solve successfully.

 

 

I'm originally from Northern Virginia and have lived in the Seattle area since 2012. I love to climb, hike, look (and dig) for cool rocks, forage for mushrooms, read, and meditate. I live with my husband and our six animals.
