I'm a true New Englander, proud dog mom, avid adventurer, scuba divemaster, and cocktail slinger. I've been known to be a high-energy spitfire by day, but I'd like nothing more than to embrace my closet introvert by night. I identify as a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and I advocate strongly for investing energy into our mental health.
Why Product Design?
I lived a previous life as an aerospace engineer - I've always loved problem solving, but I found myself in a problem space where I wasn't happy. Digging into gnarly code problems, alone at my desk (and without much interaction with others) wasn't in line with my interests or my strengths. When I learned what UX was (on a beach in Mexico, no less), I knew that solving big problems for real people was my calling, and I haven't looked back.
What I do when I'm not working
You can find me tooling around on my mountain bike, adventuring outside on a hike, planning my scuba diving trip, mixing a fresh cocktail, spending quality time with my incredible friends, or hanging with my dog.
