Biography

I am a passionate designer and UX strategist with a love of leading teams and developing new processes. I thrive in mixed-talent groups where designers, UX pros, IA thinkers (and their spreadsheets!), developers and business strategists all come together to solve problems for their clients. It doesn't matter if I am prototyping or doing a remote usability study, designing interfaces for for a web app or writing client content goals, as long as I am living in the space where I am helping a customer meet their needs and a business solve strategic goals I am one happy lady.

I blog regularly on design topics, speak on panels and run workshops on UX & UI topics. I am involved in the AIGA and SheSays communities as well.
