About Me

I studied graphic design in college and recently completed a certificate in UX Design.. I like the idea of being able to pair data with design to create a satisfying user experience. Having spent a combined 17 years in retail management and the healthcare field, I feel like I am able to empathize well, actively listen, and figure out solutions to problems.

 

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 morels, read, and meditate. I live with my husband and our seven animals.
