About Me

I worked in “big pharma” for 3½ years and found it didn’t really satisfy my creative side. Enter UX Design. In this field, I am able to follow a systematic, human-centred approach while finding and solving problems using empathy and my knowledge of psychology. I am always learning and growing and would love an opportunity to grow with you!

Curiosity is key in many of my interactions and I love finding the “why” in the things people do. It can be surprising sometimes and that’s what keeps it interesting! So why should you hire me? My passion? My curiosity? I’ll leave you with the classic UX answer, “It depends.” Check out my resume and LinkedIn below and feel free to send me a message if you care to chat!
