I'm fortunate to be in a career where I can focus on making people's lives easier. Over the years I've grown to really enjoy working across teams to help set the vision and strategy and create amazing experiences. I instinctively think about the holistic experience, push for deeper collaboration across teams, and bring clarity to difficult problems.
I've bounced back and forth across the country over the past few years; from Columbus to Seattle and now to a unique little town called Yellow Springs, Ohio. When I'm not designing, you can find me outdoors, hanging out with my critters, or at a concert with my husband.
