Professional Overview

As a user experience designer, I strive to incorporate inclusive, human-centered methods and practices into all that I do. I believe it is important to research and understand the client I am working with as well as the all-important user. Being open to learning new skills, tools, and ways of thinking is vital in the world of user experience and I love the unique challenges digital product design brings to life each day. My past work experiences as a librarian, researcher, web designer, educator, and coach, along with my years studying psychology, inform the UX design work I do today.

More About Me

I love to travel and I’ve been lucky to have visited many beautiful places in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, & Africa. I’ve been to 49 states in the U.S. with just Alaska remaining on my list to visit.

On one glorious trip to Egypt, I was able to sail the Nile River with family and visit places like Cairo, the Pyramids at Giza & the Spinx, Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, Aswan, and Abu Simbel to name a few.

I’m proud to be a Minnesotan and it’s been my home for all but 3 years of my life. I live with my husband and two beagles in the beautiful capital city of Saint Paul.

I have always adored gymnastics and competed in the sport myself from the age of 7 through my college years. I also competed in springboard diving and played soccer during the summer months.

People always ask one another, “Star Wars or Star Trek?” Well, it’s always been Star Wars for me. My younger brother and I grew up watching these grand films together and though I’m no expert, I love anything related to Star Wars.

I get very excited about almost anything related to the study of history. I love visiting historical sites and museums as well as reading and learning about historical topics and events.

You already read above about my passion for Star Wars but I also love to watch movies in general. Most genres are great for me but I especially like mysteries and comedies.

It’s hard for me to pick my favorite kind of music or a favorite artist but one of the greatest of all time is James Taylor. Most of the time you’ll find me shuffling my many playlists and doing my best to sing along to the music.

Finally, I enjoy reading mysteries – especially Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple stories – but I very much appreciate a whole long list of mystery writers.
