Attitude is the difference between adventure and ordeal
Experience-driven in every way, I love exploring new spaces, cuisine, and cultures. I believe that great design starts with empathy, organic conversations, and understanding.
After a major life event, I stepped away from a 10-year career in healthcare. This decision naturally directed me to pursue UX Design, where I could continue to intentionally serve people, and their pain points, build relationships, provide an improved quality of life, and advocate for better human experiences.
While in healthcare working directly with patients I gained deep feelings of empathy for people, especially during stressful situations like the exchange of test results, pre-procedure instructions, emergency phone calls, and engaging in vulnerable conversations with patients and loved ones.
Providing a space of safety, understanding, and confidence is a feeling I strive to achieve when building relationships.
Since becoming a UX Designer and Creative Consultant, I've been able to empower other creatives, makers, business owners, entrepreneurs, and dreamers. I intentionally design holistic solutions that serve real human needs. I deeply care about the impact I create, I hope to make the world a better place through design and understanding.
I am passionate about making a positive impact beyond digital interfaces. I believe that real change happens when we actively engage with our communities, and that's why I volunteer my time with Alki Beach PRIDE and previously with InHerShoes movement.
Through my volunteer work, I have had the opportunity to connect with people from all walks of life and work towards a common goal of creating a more inclusive and supportive community. Whether it's organizing events, spreading awareness, or simply lending a listening ear, I am committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those around me.
When I'm not volunteering, you can usually find me learning something new, trying something tasty, or adventuring with my partner.
