Unicorn: integrator of design, user experience and strategy across multiple platforms. A juggler of projects, a leader and, most importantly, a team player.
I am a designer and a rower with a preference for coffee w/ cream, a penchant for random facts and a steadfast love of people-watching. I love to be immersed in design (digital and tangible), to see a project through from beginning to end, and to be mindful of the small details that hold the bigger picture together.
I'm not afraid to get my feet wet, to roll up my sleeves or to buckle down when the going gets tough. If there's anything that I've learned from countless years of sports, teamwork, and leadership – it's that determination and a dash of optimism can go a long way.

It's the time I was born — 12:56pm.

I began rowing when I transferred to the University of Minnesota in the Fall of 2004. Three years later, I found myself standing next to eight other women on the NCAA D1 Championship podium for the Second Varsity 8.
After graduating, I moved to Boston where I've continued to row and take on various leadership roles through Riverside Boat Club. I was the New Member Coordinator for the Women's Sweep team for two years, Captain of the women's team (managing 20-30 women) for another two years, and I am currently serving on the board for Riverside – which oversees an active membership of 200+ rowers.
Experience strategy & design
I bridge the gaps between UX, visual design, strategy and development. Responsible for shepherding work through the process; specifically, identifying the needed deliverables, estimating effort, ensuring collaboration across disciplines and approvals from internal and external stakeholders. And as a leader, I am part of the work process, crafting deliverables as needed while mentoring and managing visual and UX designers.
Other fun things I've helped with this past year: copy review, stakeholder interviews, user journeys, and usability testing.
