Bio: I began my career as a writer and have always loved creating stories that touch other people. I entered the design world so I could expand my toolset, craft experiences that reach a wider audience, and more tangibly affect other people's lives.

Today I work as a UX Designer for mobile agency Prolific Interactive, designing consumer-facing native apps and mobile-first websites for major brands. I love exploring new interactions within the mobile space, but I also long to work on projects that more closely align with my values and have a greater social impact. Climate change and women's health are the causes closes to my heart.

As a designer, my process includes stakeholder interviews to get a deep sense of project requirements, general and competitive research about the space, testing prototypes with users regularly, and iterating on my designs quickly. I work closely with engineers on a daily basis and have a solid understanding of technical requirements as well.
