My UX journey
My work in UX fulfills my mission to improve others lives, while employing the strategic thinking that I love. Working in UX has given me the opportunity to challenge myself and others as we work together to create a product that users will value and enjoy.
I thrive on complicated problems that have many moving parts. I have experience identifying user needs and designing products in the corporate, non-profit, start-up, and small business sectors. My work with US-based and international users has given me many opportunities to learn about how people use and value technology.
I am currently Lead Experience/Service Designer for Spectrum Enterprise in Denver, CO.
When I'm not practicing UX
When I'm not practicing UX, I am reading and following discussions on information ethics and how information intended for good can negatively impact society. What we create in this world impacts those around us in a direct or indirect way.
I strive to make an impact within the tech community through organizations like Girl Develop It and ELAConf. I find it important to lift others up as you rise and grow as a person. Read more about the communities I support.
Dancing since I was young, I found a love for ballet as an adult and have attended class in a variety of cities across the U.S. In 2016, I brought together the world of ballet and UX with my talks on the information architecture of ballet. Using the architecture of ballet, I believe that a clear and well-defined product macro-architecture allows users to appreciate and enjoy the mirco-moments that we as designers seek to create.
I also find myself applying my background as a musician to my Information Architecture, designs, and work. Check out the connection I made between journey maps and composing.
I am currently available for consultation as a Lead Experience/Service Designer specializing in Research, Strategy & Information Architecture. Reach out if you would like me to walk you through my portfolio or wish to discuss your project.
Are you looking for a speaker for a conference or event? I’m available to present one of my existing talks or new material at reasonable rates.
