Hello, my name is

I’m a research and design team leader who has proven success managing the delivery of high-impact product design and customer experience initiatives. I have a track record of tackling groundbreaking challenges by synthesizing complex data into actionable insights leading to positive business outcomes. I’m a flexible, high-performing team player who drives collaboration between leadership, product management, engineers, marketing, and product design.

Ok enough with tooting my own horn. I enjoy working in fast-paced environments, mentoring team members and building team effectiveness. Most recently, my roles have involved leading UX programs and nurturing organizational support for creating delightful experiences.

During my career, I’ve helped grow the design literacy and fluency of teams and organizations using lean and agile methodologies. I’m passionate about fostering a culture of experimentation at companies where learning is the driver to success.
