I am a product designer and leader located in Columbus, Ohio. I am passionate about creating great experiences that help improve the way we interact with technology and each other. I believe, first and foremost, that it is my responsibility to be an advocate for every user. I strive to understand the user and their journey in order to create the best possible experience.
Over the last few years I've been leading design for the Reach and Relvance product at Stack Overflow. As a leader, I have a strong belief in building a team around a common vision and goal. This alignment creates a strong base to achieve our best work, together. I keep designers rallied around our goal, support their growth through feedback, mentorship, while seeking opportunities for each designer to shine.
As a designer, I believe in identifying problems and using research and discovery methods to solve them. Working closely with research, product, and engineering ensures that we minimize miscommunication. Ideating with workshops opens opportunity for diversity and inclusion. I practice design strategy to ensure the alignment of business and customer goals.
As a person, I am organized, a quick learner, and a resourceful problem solver. I enjoy new challenges, growth, and bettering myself as a human and a leader.
In my spare time, you can find me with family or working out.
