I’m a Product Designer focused on users. I have been working on products since 2014. I’ve worked with social-good non- and for-profits as well as seed-level to enterprise companies and currently have a full-time home at Trust & Will, an online-estate planning platform.
I’m a craftsman at heart, and love the process as much as, if not more than, the product itself. Prior to product design, I’ve worked on packaging, brand, motion, and campaign design. The broad array of design mediums in which I’ve worked helps me approach designing products from a creative place. I had a mentor once say that I was skilled at “taking nothing and turning it into something magical.”
I currently lead the design team at Kountable. Prior to that, I was a design team lead at Digital Telepathy. I went to Fort Hays State University in Western Kansas for my Bachelors in Graphic Design.
I took a book-binding course and fell in love. I’m currently working on a side project that explores the history, techniques, and tutorials of various stitches. More to come soon!
My husband and I have made it a point to adventure hard in our first several years of marriage. We bought a VW Eurovan and love to take it out on adventures. check out some of our outings on instagram!
I was a participant in a panel of expert storytellers discussing what makes a great story. In my short presentation I discussed the value of service blueprinting a company’s story and the value it brings to any product or service.
Design Forward Alliance, founded by Dr. Don Norman, put on an event to improve life, work and play in San Diego by using human-centered design to create lasting change. I was a presenter on user interface design in a room of small presentations on various design mediums.
Presented in partnership with Adobe and IxDA, World Interaction Design Day was an annual event where we come together as a united global community to show how interaction design improves the human condition. I was a live presenter for Adobe’s livestream event building a hypothetical extension application for Kountable with Adobe XD.
