ABOUT ME

I'm a full-stack UX designer and researcher ready to transform your website or app.

I'm a UX/UI designer with experience in fashion, interior design, and visual design.
My background in interior design and visual merchandising provides a creative foundation, while my experience in upper management at a retail store allows me to focus on including everyone so their voices are heard, solving problems quickly to increase efficiency, and balancing the needs of customers with those of the business.
I love helping startups and nonprofits understand their customers, improve the usability of their websites and applications, and increase conversions and revenue.
