About Me

I’m a Chicago-based UX designer that obsesses over the details of a good digital experience. With an educational background in psychology, I transitioned to UX in 2016. Since then I’ve been the UX lead on several large-scale web redesigns/rebuilds, working closely with all branches of the web team: BA, UI, development, QA, PM, AM, SEO and analytics. I frequently interface with clients as well and work on translating their needs into the design of the interface.

I’m a huge follower of Baymard Institute and NNgroup.

I have worked with clients in healthcare, insurance, finance, commodity boards, logistics, CPG, software, trade associations, working on full website redesigns down to single page redesigns, audits, and user testing.

In my spare time, you can find me playing piano, guitar, or ukelele; trying out new vegetarian recipes; working on programming projects; playing video games; and getting annoyed at bad UX I find on the internet.

Professional Pillars

What I strive for in the workplace.

Excellence

I expect only the best from myself (and those around me). I want work to be more than just a paycheck and create meaningful and high-quality work I can be proud of.

Empathy

In constant practice of putting myself in others’ shoes: for users, team members, and stakeholders.

Always Learning

I pride myself on honing and growing a multi-faceted skill set, since I love being able to help out beyond what is outlined in my job description.

Detail-Oriented

It's a resume cliche, but nevertheless it’s how I would describe my approach to a final design: no detail is too small when it comes to interactions.
