My Story

Through research and education, I find connections in my work and personal life, using a whole-system approach to distill data in digestible ways to create engaging experiences.

 

As a UX Researcher  and Service Designer, I aim to work in creating experiences for industries such as healthcare, education or others that use inclusive and accessible design and research practices.​

Because of my 10 years of working as a family caregiver with a family member with mobility and cognitive dysfunction, I know the importance of inclusion. Through this experience as an educator, researcher, and caregiver, my passion for accessibility and inclusion was intensified.

 

My educational background includes an Ed.D in Instructional Technology in Distance Education from Nova Southeastern University, a M.E. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages,  from Regent University, a M.A. in International Commerce and Policy from George Mason University, and a B.S. in Home Economics, concentrating on Fashion Merchandising, as well as a UX/UI CareerTrack bootcamp through Springboard Education.

 

Besides design and research, I enjoy travel, cooking, training my border collie dogs, and am an avid learner of the circus art of aerial silks.
