I currently reside in Seattle, Washington operating as a fully remote UX designer for Principal Financial Group, based in Des Moines, Iowa.

My average day consists of meeting with designers, engineers, and content to deliver clear and delightful experiences for users. I believe in being an advocate for the people that aren't in the room, especially concerning user privacy and how we handle their information. I believe that research should be the foundation of any marketing initiative before it gets anywhere near production. And I believe that the tools we use can be equally used for harm and for good, and it's important to tell the difference.

I graduated with my B.A. degree from Washington State University of Vancouver in May 2019, with a major in Digital Technology and Culture and a minor in Communications. I graduated Magna Cum Laude, and during my studies, I focused on web and mobile design and development. I wanted to continue down the path that would create a more equal web for all, so I completed my certificate in UX & Visual Interface Design from University of Washington in Seattle in June 2021.

I'm always looking to grow my skills, both professional and personal. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, baking, petting my cats, and playing video games over a call with friends. I welcome anyone to reach out and connect, whether to learn more about the work I do or just chat!
