Be Empathetic.


I am a thoughtful User Experience strategist and leader currently living in Charlotte, NC. I've been passionate about delivering beautiful, intuitive and functional product solutions for nearly two decades. Over the past few years I have championed a design thinking process which has allowed me to fail fast and greatly improve user experiences. In addition, I enjoy branding social events, traveling abroad, staying active and keeping things simple.
