About Me

Educator I Speaker I Entrepreneur

I don’t have a fancy art degree, or any degree for that matter, and believe that willpower is a superpower that allows oneself to carve their own path.

My Mission

I aim to inspire and uplift women and other under-represented groups, helping them balance professional development with mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Backstory

2010

Performer and Waitress

Prior to UX, I was an aspiring performer! Which meant I was waitressing and nannying to pay the bills. I had no formal education and believed I would make it in a creative career.

2015

Learned UX

After taking a 6 month solo backpacking trip, I realized I was ready for a new career and took the General Assembly Immersive course.

2016

UX Director

Within this marketing agency, I grew and managed a UX/UI team working on clients such as Papyrus and Forever 21.

2017

Agency Co-Founder

I started a UX agency working with clients such as Adobe and Keller Williams. I hired designers straight out of UX bootcamps, giving them real-world experience that helped jumpstart their careers.

2018

UX Instructor & Mentor

I love teaching UX to students at General Assembly and mentoring emerging designers at Springboard!
