Currently, I'm a Product Designer at Duo Security. My team and I build experiences that protect organizations from data breaches. My previous work experience includes designing a variety of enterprise products at IBM and Blackboard. There I had the pleasure of working on complex problems in education, cloud security, cloud infrastructure, and corporate communications.
During my career I have gained experience in:
User Experience, Interaction and Visual Design
Leading projects and working independently
Interacting with clients and users
Creating and facilitating workshops
Collaborating with a multi-functional product design/development team
On each of my teams, I have initiated custom practices to promote greater collaboration, communication, and culture. These initiatives include:
Designing an onboarding program to inform new hires more thoroughly and quickly
Leading a design patterns meeting series to gather and test UI components
I believe that by iterating on a team’s experience you will increase the quality of your user’s experience.
Outside of my product work, I have a passion for creating opportunities for people to discover more about themselves and optimize their life. I do this through public speaking, life development workshops, and small group mindfulness facilitation. In addition, I have been an entrepreneur for over a decade. I use photography and fashion styling in supporting individuals with building their vision.
On the weekend you will probably find me cooking, singing karaoke, dancing or playing volleyball with friends.
