Why I Design

I enjoy applying my visual arts background with my experience in product design to bring ideas and people's needs to life while teaching others to design. I hope to spend my design career serving my community and shaping the culture around us through partnership, compassion, and holistic solutions.

My special strengths as a teammate lie in my ability to work quickly, be flexible, and communicate productively.

Work Experience

My UX career began about 5 years ago when I started consulting with startup companies while I was in college in Athens, GA. I worked with new businesses (mostly teams of engineers) to help launch their MVPs, marketing sites, develop their user archetypes, and talk to customers. In 2015 I interned with a design agency in Atlanta called NineLabs where I was able to receive mentoring and great practice working with multiple clients at once.

At Seller Labs, I was working on products that helped Amazon sellers maximize their time, reach their customers, and learn how to run an e-commerce business. I worked on multiple SCRUM teams,

  • launching three minimum viable products for retail analytics and ad management and improved two existing products for Amazon SEO and email automation

  • decreasing customer support time spent fixing purchase and subscription errors by re-designing our account creation and checkout process UX.

  • reducing the learning curve and improving brand value by co-creating a style guide and pattern library and successfully rebranding all of our products

At Pivotal Labs, a balanced team (PM, Design, and Engineering) partners with clients hoping to transform the way they build software - faster, more user-centered, and on psychologically safe teams. Here, I've gotten awesome opportunities: 

  •  Partnered with the DoD to get a product from inception to users' hands in 6 months, instead of roughly 5-10 years. 

  • Consult on design rituals that build empathy on the whole team and involve the whole team in user research and solution-finding.
