My Story 👋
A problem solving empath
If there is one thing that I want people to know about me is that I am a natural empath, who loves to problem solve, and values others' feedback. The most important core value to me is integrity because you are nothing without it. I enjoy collaborating with others because it opens the door to so many other potential ideas.
OUTSIDE OF UX I ENJOY...
Yoga, running, traveling with my partner, long walks with Tortellini (my fur baby, he's a chihuahua/pug mix), and checking out local street art
Pizza - "A lovely cheese pizza, just for me."
When I found UX, without knowing...
While studying Elementary and Special Education, I stumbled upon my love for UX. My science professor asked the class, “what are you a master at?” Organization! I loved using organizational tools to create lesson plans and structure my papers.
Looking back, there were so many parallels to UX design that I didn’t even think of. I synthesized data from assessments and student observations to develop lesson plans based on the student's needs. I was essentially UX-ifying my lesson plans.
A balance of UX & Business
I've learned that the best products are made by balancing user needs and business goals. Cross-functional collaboration and planning has allowed me to have a deeper knowledge of what is obtainable and can set our company up for success.
