I fell in love with design early on and started creating websites and learning responsive frameworks like Bootstrap & WordPress, while earning my BA in Graphic Design. I knew I needed design in my life and began seeking more challenging opportunities. This is why I fell in love with UX/UI.
I learned that it is all about the process. Documentation, identifying pain points, researching, synthesizing collected user data into key deliverables. Using existing user patterns & when to break those patterns, iterations in an agile environment. I’ve done 1000’s of wireframes, hours of team brainstorming sessions and presented to fortune 1000 clients through my UX work.
I’ve consulted and have agency experience that has allowed me to work on a wide range of products and I am very grateful to the people who throw these opportunities my way.

I attend Hackathons! Here our team won best UX / UI. Our concept was to create an educational game that focused on Osteoporosis awareness targeted toward young adults.
